A 1588 : Permits use of preferred names on student diplomas

A 1588  (Moen, Jasey)  NJEA believes in the equality of all individuals. We have always sought to increase respect, understanding, acceptance, and sensitivity toward all individuals and groups in our diverse society.  Allowing the use of preferred names on diplomas will help protect students against discrimination based off gender identity and expression, as well as support transgender and gender non-conforming students in our schools and colleges. NJEA is committed to the human and civil rights of all people, including our members, students, their families and the communities in which they live.

NJEA encourage you to vote YES on A 1588
