New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin is co-sponsoring a letter that supports robust antidiscrimination protections for transgender students that could go a long way in changing the landscape of local school athletics.

Platkin joins a list that includes 12 Attorney Generals from around the country as a response to a proposed rule by the United State Department of Education that would “clarify how schools receiving federal funding can remain in compliance with Title IX, a federal civil rights statute, when determining a transgender student’s eligibility to participate on school athletic teams.”

Their letter recommends revisions to the rule that would guarantee the inclusion of all trans students in school sports from elementary through high school until they reach college athletics. The AG’s urge the Biden administration to require that schools receiving federal funding allow transgender students to participate at all levels of athletic play.

“Every student deserves a safe and inclusive school environment,” Platkin says in a statement posted to the Attorney General’s page. “In New Jersey, we recognize the benefit of school sports on overall education, and we will continue to protect transgender students from all forms of discrimination in schools across our State.”
