BLOGAsk the U.S. Supreme Court to Protect Student Privacy

By Katie Heller Posted on: | September 12, 2016

Over the last several months, you’ve no doubt heard about the federal government’s push to violate the bodily privacy rights of your children and grandchildren. And if you haven’t, here’s the short version. In May 2016, the Obama Administration issued a new mandate demanding that schools must let boys in the girls’ locker rooms, shower facilities, and restrooms . . . and vice versa. This mandate is not limited to certain areas of the country. It impacts all public and private educational institutions, from preschool to post-graduate school, that receive federal funds.

Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway) this is a complete disregard for your children and grandchildren's right to bodily privacy . . . and an abuse of power by the Administration.

That’s why Alliance Defending Freedom sprang into action and filed several lawsuits to fight this mandate on behalf of students, parents, and school districts.

Now, your voice counts more than ever.

As one of several lawsuits regarding this issue is being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court, we are ramping up our effort to say enough is enough. ADF is filing a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the school district in Gloucester County School Board v. G.G. (a case in which a student is demanding access to facilities reserved for members of the opposite sex). And we want to make sure the Court knows where people like you stand on this issue.

But, we can’t do it alone. We need your voice.

As people who deeply care about the privacy rights of our children and grandchildren, we must act. Right now, you have the opportunity to join us in this fight by signing our brief and telling the U.S. Supreme Court that we must protect the bodily privacy of our children.

No matter if you are a student, parent, grandparent, or concerned community member, your voice counts.
