    Peoria teacher sues district after being harassed for supporting transgender students – By Perry Vandell (Arizona Republic) / Aug 26, 2023

    A Peoria educator is suing the Peoria Unified School District after they say they faced extended harassment when they sent an email to their colleagues encouraging them to support transgender students.

    A group of about 40 people gathered at Calbrisa Park on Wednesday to support nonbinary educator River Chunnui and call for an end to the harassment.

    Chunnui was walking onto campus at Desert Harbor Elementary School in Peoria where they work as a special education teacher in 2022 when they noticed two students wearing colors from the transgender flag, they told The Arizona Republic.

    Chunnui, who is nonbinary, understood the students were likely wearing the colors in observance of the date: March 31, 2022, Transgender Day of Visibility. Chunnui figured some educators might not have been aware of the day and sent an email to school staff on how they could support participating students.
