FPIW Signs Letter Urging Congress to Respond to Obama Overreach


Recently, the Obama Administration mandated a new policy, aimed at cracking down on “discrimination” in public schools.  The decree states that, because it is discriminatory to maintain policies that segregate boys and girls from school locker rooms, showers, and bathrooms, and any school found to discriminate against students is subject to removal of federal funding.

This move has met fierce resistance nationally, from parents and students alike, even prompting a group of Medford, Oregon students to skip school in protest.

The Family Policy Institute of Washington has signed onto a letter to Congressional leadership asking them to respond swiftly to the Obama Administration’s overreach.  The letter asks Congress to:

  • Formally oppose the mandate
  • Side with states, families, and schools in litigation
  • Hold hearings and summon the Department of Education and Department of Justice
  • Draft legislation that reins in the DOE/DOJ’s overreach, and hold a vote quickly

FPIW joins a long list of other organizations in signing the letter, which you can read in its entirety here.

Add your name to the list of people telling President Obama to mind his own bathroom!
