Tech Brands Issue Statements Opposing Trump’s Decision to Roll Back Transgender Protections

Apple, Google, IBM and more are taking a stand

On Wednesday President Donald Trump revoked protections for transgender students in public schools that gave them the ability to use the bathroom that corresponded with their gender identity. In a letter, the Trump administration explained that the protections, which were issued under the Obama administration, were “improperly and arbitrarily devised” and “without due regard for the primary role of the states and local school districts in establishing educational policy,” according to the New York Times.
