This morning, the Arizona House of Representatives passed an extreme and regressive bill to ban trans youth from participating in school sports – and potentially require invasive medical screenings for all young athletes competing in sporting events. This bill is part of a disturbing trend: politicians in statehouses around the country are introducing legislation to single out trans youth and bar them from school activities and sports.

Transgender Law Center – with TRUTH, our joint youth media organizing program with GSA Network – today released a resource for journalists covering this type of legislation. Please read and share the resource below.
