VICTORY: Gov. Brown supports transgender youth and signs A.B. 1266
By prohibiting discrimination against transgender students, the School Success and Opportunity Act (A.B. 1266) ensures schools understand their responsibility for the success and well-being of all students. For transgender students, this bill means they’re able to fully participate in all of their classes, try out for sports teams and stay on track to graduate.
Ashton Lee, a transgender student, delivered 5,000 petition signatures to Gov. Jerry Brown’s office, and less than a month later, Gov. Brown signed the bill.
