Walgreens adopts shocking restroom policy

Walgreens has adopted a new policy regarding its restrooms that has many people outraged.  The policy allows men to utilize the women’s restrooms. The policy has led to the circulation of a petition by the American Family Association.

The policy reads, “All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth.” You can read the Walgreens policy, which was adopted in November 2017, in its entirety by clicking here.

The policy also states that it is to show support for and foster respect and inclusion of transgender individuals.

The American Family Association has launched an effort to have the company policy overturned. The group is circulating a petition which can be accessed here.

Walgreens has a store located in Elizabethtown located at 403 S. Poplar Street.
