Congresswoman Kelly Slams Trump, Calling Transgender Student Policy “Born in a Spirit of Division”

Feb 23, 2017
Press Release

Matteson, IL - Congresswoman Robin Kelly released this statement following President Trump's decision to revoke guidance protecting transgender students:

"No student should go to school and face discrimination because of who they are. All children have a right to a quality, fear-free education.

The Administration’s move to strip away the rights of transgender students is regressive, born in a spirit of division, and blatantly discriminatory. 

Attacking defenseless children who simply want to go to school isn't the type of education leadership that makes us better as a nation. Today's action shows just how far this Administration’s policies are from uniting us as a country.  If we are to create a brighter future for this nation, we must protect the rights of all children and the LGBT community."
