Director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union Maya Dillard Smith is stepping down from the organization following a disagreement over trans rights.
The resignation is due to President Obama's directive for schools to allow transgender students to use their choice of public restroom.
ACLU supports the directive but Dillard Smith is strongly against it, according to The Washington Times.
“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school-age daughters into a women’s restroom when, shortly after, three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices entered,” Smith said in an interview with Life Site News.
According to Dillard Smith, her children were "frightened" and "concerned about their safety and left asking a lot of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer."
In terms of ACLU, Smith deemed herself "principally and philosophically unaligned with the organization."
Dillard Smith has since created a new website which aims to create "safe spaces" for people to ask questions and raise concerns.
