LGBTQ+ people under the age of 24, with at least one parent in the military, who have family support are more than 40% less likely to experience anxiety, depression, or to report a suicide attempt than those who do not have family support.

This is the LAST WEEK to submit your comment to support trans youth athletes!

20 states have anti-trans sports bans, with more states trying to pile on with trans discrimination. Now, it’s time to take action in support of trans student athletes

The Department of Education is taking comments for only one more week, through May 15th, on its proposed rule on Title IX Athletics, which prohibits categorical exclusion of trans athletes by schools and sets criteria to which they must adhere to receive federal funds. Read our fact sheet to learn more about the proposed rule.

Submit your comment today! Together we can ensure that non-discrimination protections based on sex are fully inclusive of our transgender, nonbinary and intersex loved ones and neighbors!
