Increasingly, legal protections are being put in place empowering families and caregivers to insist that the rights of their gender-expansive children are protected at school. California’s AB 1266 and the US Department of Education’s (DOE) clarifications about Title IX protections extending to transgender and other gender-expansive students are just two recent examples of the shifting legal landscape. This session will examine the various ways in which families can utilize the law to support their child’s access to a safe and positive educational experience, and how to work with the DOE’s Office of Civil Rights when it is not occurring. Come learn what it means to really have the law on your side
