In the immediate aftermath of the US Departments of Justice and Education withdrawing their Title IX guidance supporting transgender student inclusion, the Pennsylvania Youth Congress convened an emergency state meeting of young trans Pennsylvanians in Harrisburg. This meeting welcomed over 20 trans youth from all across the state to meet with Physican General Dr. Rachel Levine to discuss the issues occurring in our state’s schools. The afternoon meeting also included a press conference, featuring remarks from students in Pittsburgh and and the Pine-Richland School Districts.

The PA Trans Youth Roundtable plans to meet again to grow into an corps of young trans leaders in Pennsylvania.
