...Title

Legal Definition of Sex Under Title IX.

...Recommendation

As recommended by the Rules and Open Government Committee on October 31, 2018:

(a) Direct the City Attorney to analyze the Department of Health and Human Services effort to establish a new legal definition of sex under Title IX; and to come back to Rules with a report of a potential federal policy change and the effect on the City of San José, our employees, and residents.

(b) Adopt a resolution opposing any policy change in Title IX that rolls back civil rights protections for the Transgender Community. Deliver a letter to the largest federal agencies that enforce some part of Title IX: Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Roger Severino, Director of the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
