WILL, ADF attorneys represent 14 parents from eight Madison families

MADISON, Wis. – Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys, together with lead counsel from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, asked a state court Wednesday to immediately halt a Madison Metropolitan School District policy that instructs school teachers and staff to assist and encourage children of any age in the adoption of transgender identities without parental consent or even notice. The policy even instructs district employees to deceive parents about the gender identity their son or daughter has adopted at school.

WILL and ADF attorneys represent 14 individual parents from eight families at the school district in challenging the policy, which violates constitutionally protected parental rights. According to an expert affidavit filed by the parents and submitted by Dr. Stephen B. Levine, a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, social transition of children is an experimental therapy that exposes vulnerable children to dangerous, lifelong physical, social, and mental health risks.
