BLOGCommon Sense Returns to School Locker Rooms

By Bob Trent Posted on: | February 27, 2017

This week on Freedom Matters Kerri Kupec and Kellie Fiedorek take a deep dive into the rescission of the Obama Administration Transgender Guidance Letter.

The policy forced schools across the country to choose between opening their locker rooms, shower areas, and even overnight accommodations to members of the opposite sex or lose federal funding. When President Obama issued a directive in May 2016 doubling down on the guidance letter, parents, students, and school districts filed lawsuits to challenge what many consider to be executive overreach and an illegal redefinition of Title IX regulation.


With the spring comes a new legislative season with some states considering sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) laws.

If you listened to last week’s show, you will know about Barronelle Stutzman, florist from Richland, WA who was told by the state supreme court that she should lose everything she owns because she declined to use her creative talents to promote a same-sex ceremony. It was a SOGI law that allowed the attorney general and the ACLU to go after Barronelle in the first place.

Kellie was in Nebraska with Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, to show legislators how these harmful laws are hurting those who live and work consistent with their faith. Jack is facing a similar fate as Barronelle. We could hear any time if the US Supreme Court will hear his case
