2/27 CALL TO ACTION: Protecting Iowa Children in Bathrooms and Locker Rooms

Updated: Mar 12


Listen to this Special and TIMELY 3min message from Senator Cherielynn Westrich


We have to protect our Children in their bathrooms and locker rooms.

There are girls in some Iowa schools whose privacy is being violated and they are being made to feel incredibly uncomfortable right now.

SF 335

Requires persons to use the bathroom and facilities that CORRESPONDS TO THEIR BIOLOGICAL SEX at school.

You'd think it would be common sense but unfortunately its not. It's extremely sad that there are schools that are currently violating our children's right to privacy while using the bathroom and locker room.

This is an Act prohibiting persons from entering single and multiple occupancy toilet facilities and other facilities in elementary and secondary schools that do not correspond with the person’s biological sex - Read the Bill Here
