campaignStudent Privacy

We must protect the privacy of all students.

In recent months, the federal government began enforcing its novel mandate demanding that schools place boys in the girls’ locker rooms, shower facilities, restrooms, and even overnight accommodations on school trips … and vice versa. This mandate impacts every public and private educational institution, from preschool to post-graduate school, that receives federal funds—and violates the privacy of the students who are forced to accept the opposite sex within these sensitive facilities.


What We're Doing About It

Alliance Defending Freedom is working to protect privacy for all students in sensitive areas such as locker rooms, shower facilities, restrooms, and overnight accommodations. That’s why we are:

  • Providing a model state law and local school policy that protects privacy for all students in these sensitive areas
  • Defending school districts that maintain good student privacy policies from enforcement actions by the U.S. Department of Education and Office of Civil Rights
  • Providing legal expertise to city and state legislatures on the constitutional right to bodily privacy and the legality of policies and laws that protect such privacy
  • Filing lawsuits on behalf of students, their parents, and other individuals who have been harmed by these bad policies
