A Wisconsin elementary school has cancelled plans to read a book about a transgender girl after it was threatened with a lawsuit.
The Mount Horeb Primary Center had planned to read and discuss the book “I Am Jazz,” a children’s book based on the real life of the transgender teenager Jazz Jennings, the Associated Press reports.
However, the Liberty Counsel, a Florida nonprofit, threatened to sue the school on behalf of “concerned parents” who did not want their children reading the book. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Liberty Counsel as a hate group with anti-LGBT views.
On Wednesday, the school district said it would no longer go through with the reading of “I Am Jazz.” The district said it would give the Board of Education the opportunity to address the situation.
