MELBOURNE, FL - Today, Moms for Liberty is taking steps to continue their fight against Biden’s new Title IX Regulations by filing a lawsuit today, along with Kansas, Alaska, Utah, Wyoming, and Young America’s Foundation, to stop Biden’s Title IX Department of Education regulations for taking effect and gutting parental rights in K-12 education. Moms for Liberty is represented by Southeastern Legal Foundation and Mountain States Legal Foundation.

New federal Title IX language makes “gender identity” a protected class, which means students cannot use birth gender pronouns or other descriptors about those who no longer “identify” with that gender in school without facing possible discipline or embarrassment. Moms for Liberty argues that these overly broad regulations will also chill a student’s ability to say they are uncomfortable with someone of the opposite birth sex in their bathroom, and that a parent could be prevented from being the one to teach their own child about gender identity as it aligns with their personal beliefs. 

Moms for Liberty Co-founders Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich said, “Parental rights do not end at the classroom door. Every parent in America is about to see biological boys on girls’ sports teams and in girls’ locker rooms; and gender identity and sexual orientation will be taught in every classroom across America, whether parents like it or not. They won’t have a choice. Private conversations will happen between school officials and minor school children about changing their gender, and if parents try to fight back they will be the ones in the wrong. This is a huge shift in policy that effectively mandates gender ideology in schools. It is outrageous. Our children GO to public school. They do not BELONG to public school. That is something we will never stop fighting to prove, even if it means going toe-to-toe against the heavy-handed ‘gender identity’ mandates from the Biden Administration.”

Counsel for Moms for Liberty, Southeastern Legal Foundation’s Kimberly Hermann said, “The Department of Education’s drastic Title IX re-write guts parental rights, forces our children to affirm the idea that kids can change their gender, and threatens punishment if they dare speak up for their physical safety in a bathroom or locker room. We are proud to stand with Moms for Liberty as we fight to stop these blatant First Amendment violations.”
