Those that support transgendered rights protested in Cranston Monday.
Close to a hundred people protested a private forum at William Hall Library.
The Independent Women's Network, a right-wing group, sponsored the forum on the topic of what is being taught about gender in schools.
Library director Ed Garcia said he disagreed with the views of the forum, but that the facility has a long-standing practice of allowing outside groups to hold private meetings.
The ACLU of Rhode Island says it fully supports the library's position.
