On February 10th we testified against SF 224, a bill to prevent transgender students from using the appropriate restroom at schools. We heard from all sorts of folks from students, parents, and experts in the field. They were unanimous: this bill is bad. Only one person spoke in favor of the bill, Chuck Hurley of The Family Leader. Regardless, Carlin and Taylor advanced the bill to the full committee.

Contact the Republican members of the Senate Education Committee and ask them to reject this legislation.
