The nation’s major child advocacy groups (includingAmerican Academy of Pediatrics, American Counseling Association, American School Counselor Association, Child Welfare League of America, National Association of School Psychologists, National Association of Social Workers, and the National Education Association) have issued an open letter to governors asking that they veto any anti-transgender youth legislation that lands on their desk.

Additionally, the South Dakota Association of School Psychologists has issued a letter to Governor Daugaard asking him to veto an extreme, anti-transgender bill that would require schools to determine students’ gender by comparing DNA, Birth Certificates, and genitals.

Both letters are below.
