You Have the Right to Be Yourself
LGBTQ+ Students' Rights at School in Maryland. Know Your Rights about gender, dress codes, self-expression, and more.
How to Get Help
- If you believe your rights have been violated, remain calm. Complying with an order from a school official doesn't affect your right to challenge it later on. But arguing or not cooperating might make it harder to advocate for your rights later. Keep copies of any paperwork the school gives you and contact the ACLU of Maryland.
- Contacting the ACLU of Maryland is confidential – any communication between you and the ACLU will be kept private. The ACLU works hard to respond to every request by considering requests for assistance, providing information, and/or offering referrals.
