CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Former Vice President Mike Pence was in Cedar Rapids Wednesday afternoon.

Pence spoke on parental rights, specifically against the Linn-Mar Community School District’s gender-affirming policy.

He will hold a rally with his group, Advancing American Freedom, which filed a lawsuit against Linn-Mar over the policy, which it adopted last year.

That policy allows students to request a gender support plan without their parent’s permission, and would punish other students who don’t use a student’s preferred pronouns or express certain opinions regarding transgender issues.

The speech comes ahead of a potential announcement about a 2024 presidential campaign.
