Defending Parental Rights in Ludlow, MA

Last week, I filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of two families against public school officials in Ludlow, MA. The families are suing for violations of their parental rights stemming from a district policy prohibiting school staff from sharing information with parents about a student’s discordant gender identity and efforts to promote that identity in school. In the case of one of the families, school officials were actively transitioning their 11-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son without their parents’ knowledge and against their wishes, interfering with the parents’ right to make mental health decisions for their children.  As we have seen in many instances in recent years, the behavior of some public school officials sends the message that parents do not have the best interest of their children in mind. It assumes that children need to be protected FROM their parents, instead of BY their parents. This needs to stop.

Fortunately, we’ve been able to partner in this effort with the Child & Parental Rights Campaign, which has been involved in a number of similar cases across the country.

In order to protect the privacy of the children and the families involved in this litigation, we did not seek media attention. However, court filings are public documents, and news coverage of this case has exploded over the past several days, as you can see here:

I wanted to make sure you knew about this important case and thank you for making our work possible.
