The latest culture-war clash could shape after-school activities for LGBTQ students in Marysville

Earlier this week, school board members in Marysville listened to parents, teachers, and students sound off on a proposed district policy that would require students to get their guardian's permission to join clubs.

Families and club advisors say this policy — which hasn't been enacted yet — would limit the access LGBTQ youth could have to a safe space at their school.

The policy, which would be the first of its kind in Washington state, echoes a culture war flashpoint over sexual orientation and gender identity in other parts of the country.

Soundside host Libby Denkmann spoke to the Daily Herald of Everett's Isabella Breda about the policy proposal, and how the Marysville community is responding.
