Gender Justice Saved My Kid: One Family’s Story
/

Among our amazing guests, we welcomed Helene and Matthew Woods. Helene recounts the challenging journey of Matt, during his transition from elementary to middle school. After Matt came out as transgender, he faced significant difficulties at school, including discrimination and being denied access to appropriate restrooms. This led to frequent absences and a loss of interest in school. After the family patiently explored several solutions, their struggles led to a legal battle, and with the support of the attorneys at Gender Justice, the Woods family won in a pivotal court decision that affirmed Matt’s identity. This legal victory rekindled Matt’s motivation, leading to an impressive academic comeback, high school graduation, and more.

The team at Gender Justice is extremely proud to have had the opportunity to represent the Woods family. And we will continue to provide legal support and advocacy in overcoming discrimination and fostering positive change for all.
