When a vegan lets you know about the meat, dairy, and egg industry, they are not forcing their “beliefs” down your throat.

-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students

-preferred names/pronouns on all school records

-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
