Minnesota Department of Education approves a toolkit to better protect transgender and non-binary students

This is good news for the transgender community in Minnesota since the Department of Education has decided to fight bullying of LGBTQ students by approving a new toolkit. This will allow all public and charter schools to welcome non-binary students under the best conditions.

This kit is also a wish of the state to no longer have LGBTQ students being obliged to defend their rights before a court. Schools should be able to protect their students.

OutFront Minnesota launched this toolkit which has received support from over 1,000 parents. It consists of 11 pages which provide many resources and guidance (legal details, good practices like the use of gender neutral pronouns for example).

We welcome Minnesota Department of Education's decision to commit to protecting LGBTQ students, particularly at the present time when the Trump government is targeting, as you know, transgender people. Let's hope that other states follow Minnesota.

The kit is available here: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/53e8f0b2e4b0638731efc6f5/t/59540e12bebafb4aa8845f09/1498680854530/Toolkit_DraftVersion2.pdf
