A North Carolina school district that is considering measures that go against state law regarding transgender access to bathrooms and that tells faculty parental involvement in student gender identity issues may be optional has received nearly 2,500 complaint letters.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools decided earlier this year to allow transgender students to use the restrooms and facilities of their chosen gender identity, defying North Carolina’s HB 2 law.
In response, the pro-HB 2 group NC Values Coalition created a complaint letter that it called upon concerned citizens to send to the school board in advance of their Tuesday meeting.
Jim Quick, spokesman for the Coalition, told The Christian Post about the number of people protesting the transgender facility policy of CMS.
“We have had 1,575 individuals download the NC Values Coalition letter to sign and mail into Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and an additional 877 families have sent each board member an email through the KeepMyNCSafe.com website,” explained Quick.
“95 percent of the individuals we are connecting with through the email service have children inside the CMS school system.”
Earlier this year, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools decided to implement a policy allowing students to use the public facilities of their chosen gender identity rather than their biological sex.
The move came in response to North Carolina’s HB 2 law, also called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which states that an individual must use the bathroom corresponding with the gender of their birth certificate in government facilities.
Through the site Keep NC Safe, the Coalition encouraged concerned parents and others to send a complaint letter to CMS leadership.
