Former Vice President Mike Pence will be in Minneapolis Wednesday morning for a speech on what organizers term “defending parents’ rights and combatting the Radical Left’s indoctrination of children”:

Pence’s morning appearance here, and in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Wednesday afternoon, coincide with oral arguments in Iowa federal court on a lawsuit challenging a transgender policy in the Linn-Mar Community School District in the Cedar Rapids area.  Opponents say that policy is “designed to effectuate students’ gender transition” and punish students who do not use a classmate’s preferred pronouns or who voice certain opinions on transgender issues.  Students at the high school walked out of class in late 2021 after Transgender Awareness Week posters were vandalized, while a much smaller group counter-protested.

At the Minnesota Legislature, Democrats have fast-tracked bills banning so-called “conversion therapy” for LGBTQ youth.
