Protect #TransRights on Give OUT Day and DOUBLE your impact today!
Gender Justice is a small and mighty nonprofit fighting to advance gender equity through the law. With your generous support, we use litigation and policy advocacy to break down gender barriers and uphold basic human rights—regardless of any client’s ability to pay.
We are busier than ever fighting to protect #TransRights. In February, we filed a lawsuit in partnership with the ACLU of Minnesota, asserting that the Anoka-Hennepin School District violated the Minnesota constitution and Human Rights Act by singling out and discriminating against transgender student N.H., and failing to provide him with an equal education.
The lawsuit asserts that the school administration barred N.H. from using the locker room that matched his gender identify, as he had been for months without incident as a member of the swim team. Instead N.H. was singled out and forced to use segregated changing facilities no other student was required to use, which led to bullying and threats to him and his mother.
This Give OUT Day, Gender Justice is raising $6,000 to support our work fighting for N.H. and strengthening protections for all trans students in Minnesota.
And it’s not just us who are concerned. Not event a month after our case was filed the Minnesota Attorney General’s office in the case. The MDHR’s complaint alleges, as we did, that the school district’s policy constitutes discrimination against transgender students.
When agencies intervene in our cases, they are affirming the value and impact of our work. With your support, we are breaking down gender barriers every day.
On #GiveOUTDay every dollar you give to Gender Justice will go directly to our work fighting for trans rights. And this year we have a generous $3,000 match that will DOUBLE your gift.
If you believe in the groundbreaking work Gender Justice does, GiveOUT Day is the perfect time to show your support with a gift. By helping us reach our $6,000 fundraising goal you make it possible for us to break down the gender barriers holding trans and nonbinary folks back from thriving in the world.
Thank you for your support and solidarity. Your help makes our work possible.
