Family Group and Feminists Form Partnership on Transgender Issue

COLORADO SPRINGS, Co.: Family Policy Alliance continues to work with feminist group Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) in submitting a friend-of-the-court brief in the Gloucester case now before the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The U.S. Supreme Court remanded the case back to the lower court after the Trump Administration rescinded the previous Administration’s Title IX mandate allowing boys access to girls’ locker rooms, showers and restrooms. Much of the initial decision from the Fourth Circuit had rested on that presidential mandate.

Natasha Chart with WoLF said working with Family Policy Alliance is both sensible and important.

“What’s at stake here is the end of women’s and girls’ existence as a legal class,” she explained. “Gender identity policies in public accommodations not only forbid lawmakers and the courts from seeing sex as an immutable characteristic, they redefine any separate legal recognition for women and girls as discriminatory. With so much on the line, it’s urgent to build bridges across disagreement and take action to protect our rights.”

Autumn Leva, director of policy and communications for Family Policy Alliance, said the partnership with WoLF just makes sense.

“Family Policy Alliance and WoLF may disagree on many issues,” she said, “but we do agree on gender identity, pornography and sex trafficking. These are harmful to women and should be stopped. We’re delighted to work with WoLF on this brief.”

The Fourth Circuit has ordered briefs be submitted in this month. Family Policy Alliance and WoLF will be submitting theirs May 17t
