Parent and lawyer Nicole Solas initially requested for the information from Providence Public Schools (PPS). But Charles Ruggerio, Providence deputy city solicitor, accused her of "doxing" the "medical information" of PPS Director of Equity and Belonging, Aarav Sundaresh.
The director, a biological woman who identifies as a man, is an active member of the National Trans Educators Network. In a 2020 video posted by GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, Sundaresh admitted to originally identifying as a lesbian before claiming to be transgender.
Solas denied the accusation, arguing that her statements are protected by free speech. She also demanded that Ruggerio, who represents PPS, be sanctioned by Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha for giving false information.
"Ruggerio seeks to suppress my protected speech … by weaponizing my own protected speech about public records he provided to me, in order to suppress public information about the volunteer-employees who advise Genders and Sexualities Alliances (GSA) [student clubs in PPS]," she said. "The identities of all adults volunteering or working in public schools should not be a government secret."
Solas originally filed an Access to Public Records Act (APRA) during the spring of 2023 to request for communications between Sundaresh and staff from Youth Pride RI. The group's weekly "Little Unicorns" virtual meetings involve children aged between five and nine years old. "It's a program for purportedly gay five-year-olds to talk to adults about gender and sexuality on Zoom," she said.
Solas' aggressive quest for transparency through APRA requests drew the ire of the National Education Association (NEA), the most powerful teachers' union in the country. The NEA took her to court alongside the South Kingstown SD to prevent the release of records on critical race theory (CRT), antiracism, gender theory and children's sexuality.
Back in May, Solas disclosed in a televised interview that she had become the focal point of a "secret meeting" held by the NEA. This came after she questioned the teaching of radical gender theory in her child's school. She also disclosed that the NEA sued her as part of an alleged years-long harassment campaign.
The dispute began when Solas initiated records requests to obtain information about her school district's curriculum after learning that her daughter's school was teaching lessons on gender reassignment and CRT. She faced continuous resistance from school staff who refused to answer her questions, even though her queries were perfectly legal.
Leaked emails between two school officials involving the use of students' preferred pronouns behind their parents' back escalated things, and the NEA proceeded with the lawsuit threat.
Solas shared slides from a presentation allegedly leaked to her by a middle school math teacher. The slides depicted her requests as part of a larger effort by outside groups with outdated thinking to promote inaccurate lessons that foster division. Solas criticized the slides, likening them to a "woke witch hunt" with her as the target. (Related: Teachers’ union creates badges to identify LGBT-friendly educators, website to promote ‘sex acts.’)
According to Solas, other parents have also shared with her their experiences of receiving lawsuit threats from teachers' unions across the country.
"I had no idea that I would be treated like an adversary," she said. "I thought I had all of these rights going into public school. I thought I could ask to see the curriculum, but just asking to see the curriculum caused my school district and teachers’ union to retaliate against me, and they really tried to ruin my life."
