For Immediate Release: Equality Texas Releases Statement on MacArthur High School Walkout September 23, 2021 at 3:00 pm School administrators and educators have made a commitment to keep all students safe, not just some. Removing symbols that help LGBTQ+ students feel affirmed and seen sends a dangerous message to LGBTQ+ kids and their peers — and promotes a hostile school climate.
For Immediate Release: Equality Texas Releases Statement on Senate Chamber Passage of SB 3 September 22, 2021 at 5:50 pm Today the Senate disgracefully — but predictably — passed SB 3, a bill designed to fix the manufactured crisis of trans kids dominating UIL sports with zero (0) examples cited on the floor.
