Evancho was among many celebrities who reacted to the Trump administration’s decision to revoke federal guidelines regarding bathroom requirements for transgender students at public schools on Wednesday.

The 16-year-old singer, who has a transgender sister, expressed her displeasure with the president’s decision on Twitter. She also asked Trump to give her and her sister an opportunity to speak with him about transgender rights.

The Trump administration revoked the federal guidelines put in place by President Obama allowing public school students to use the restroom that matches whatever gender they identify with.

“This is an issue best solved at the state and local level,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement. “Schools, communities, and families can find–and in many cases have found–solutions that protect all students.”
