I need to locate trans employees at Deluxe Corporation. Do you know of any?  Could you ask your contacts if they know of anyone?

Fabulous musical plea to the NY Senate to pass the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act this year - well worth a listen

Arne Duncan wrote this meaningless letter to state education departments knowing that the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education NEVER enforces the law. 

When parents file a complaint with OCR, they are taken on an emotional roller coaster and lied to by the OCR staff. School administrators are NEVER held accountable for violating the laws but are allowed to end investigations without admitting to doing anything wrong. They have to promise to post a bogus survey (that anyone can take). They promise to do some training. That's about it. 

The children who have been attacked are often forced to drop out of school for their own safety. OCR staff never help them finish their education and do not care if they never get a diploma. I know this first-hand after trying to help some families whose children were attacked in school. 

The children who are attacked them are rarely arrested (if the attack is violent) or expelled.

 Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment and gender‐based harassment of all students,regardless of the actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity of the harasser or target.
  
Although Title IX does not prohibit discrimination based solely on sexual orientation,Title IX does protect all students, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, from sex discrimination.  When students are subjected to harassment
on the basis of their LGBT status, they may also, as this example illustrates, be subjected to forms of sex discrimination prohibited under Title IX.  The fact that the harassment includes anti‐LGBT comments or is partly based on the target’s actual or perceived
sexual orientation does not relieve a school of its obligation under Title IX to investigate and remedy overlapping sexual harassment or gender‐based harassment.  In this example, the harassing conduct was based in part on the student’s failure to act as some of his peers believed a boy should act.  The harassment created a hostile
environment that limited the student’s ability to participate in the school’s education program (e.g., access to the drama club).  Finally, even though the student did not identify the harassment as sex discrimination, the school should have recognized that the student had been subjected to gender‐based harassment covered by Title IX"

Bill Mills helped me get what I wanted and needed in a Jeep Patriot. He was patient and answered all my questions. He was also open to making a deal, and helped get my payment closer to what I could afford. It was a pleasure to work with him. Also, the company has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
