Full story on CBSlocal
The possible win for a hate group is a failure for Illinois human rights groups to organise effectively.
The rational given for rescinding the trans policy was since there were only a couple trans people in the School district and they had not received any complaints from them, the school board felt the policy would be unnecessary.
The reality is they were intimidated by the hate group the Illinois Family Institute’s email campaign which not only demands a repeal of the policy but in addition the firing of the School Board as well.
You can attend the meeting tonight at East Aurora School Service Center located at 417 Fifth Street in Aurora and will be Friday, Oct. 19 at 5:30 p.m.
