Keep Alex in Girl Scouts

Lindsay Rivas started this petition to Girl Scouts of Eastern Oregon and Northern Idaho

My son was born in a female body. In December of 2020, he came out as transgender and we began to use his correct pronouns. We informed his Girl Scout troop leader, and according to council he would not be allowed to continue being a Girl Scout. Cookie season begins next week, and he is being held in limbo, while the council tries to decide what to do because I am not backing down for my son.

Recently there was a transgender Scout in the Western Washington council that received his Gold Award. This is in the very same state, and his council was supportive. 

My son has grown a lot emotionally due to having the friends and experiences that he does in Girl Scouts. However because he is identifying as he truly is, he is being kicked out. 

Please help me to show our council how loved Alex is, and how much he deserves to continue being a Gorl Scout.
