Today, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona issued the following statement on Transgender Day of Visibility:
“On Transgender Day of Visibility and every day, we must show transgender students that we see them and that we support them. We know many transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming students face challenges that can impact their mental health and their ability to thrive in school—not because of who they are, but because of the hostility directed at them.
