WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

Transgender people face some of the highest levels of discrimination in the United States. And transgender students face a unique set of circumstances that often put them in the difficult position of being forced to participate in sports and other activities that don’t suit their expressed gender—and excluded from those that do. This made it much tougher for many students to succeed in school. But recently a bill sponsored by California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown put an end to school policies and practices that discriminate against transgender students. And CREDO helped. Nearly 7,000 Californians signed a CREDO grassroots petition started by transgender student Ashton Lee urging the governor to sign the bill.
