ACTION ALERT: Protect the FAIR Education Act

Friends,

Just a few short weeks ago supporters of equality rejoiced at the passage of a landmark piece of legislation - the FAIR Education ACT (SB48), a law that put California on the map for taking a bold step forward to ensure that all students are provided the opportunity to learn about LGBT history and the contributions of LGBT people.

Now, opponents are working overtime to repeal SB48 and we need your help to make sure they are not successful!

We've seen these campaigns before.

ACTION ALERT: Tell school district's LGBT students that we have their backs

I’m tired of asking this. And I think you probably are too.

When it comes to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, just how bad do things have to get before they change?

It’s tough being a teenager anywhere, but being a student in Minnesota’s Anoka-Hennepin School District is especially hard. Why? Because there’s actually a “gag policy” that prevents school staff from talking about LGBT issues.

The bottom line is that this gag policy has created an environment where LGBT kids are relentlessly and cruelly bullied.
