A new organization has already sprouted to fight Fort Worth ISD’s transgender bathroom policy.
About 50 people, mostly parents, gathered in front of Trimble Tech High Monday morning. They call themselves “Stand for Fort Worth.” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stood with them.
Founder Zeb Pent says the group began forming last Tuesday, when opponents and supporters confronted each other at a Fort Worth school board meeting.
“In just one week, ‘Stand for Fort Worth’ has over 1,200 members on Facebook, and over 2,000 signatures on our petition,” Pent said. “We have only just begun.”
They said the petition is to repeal the policy. They feel they were locked out of Fort Worth ISD’s transgender bathroom decision to allow students to use the restroom of the gender they identify with.
