Target: U.S. Congress
Goal: Stop the bullying of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students have historically been alienated, harassed, and bullied in their schools, often with little or no intervention from school personnel. Far too many of these students have underperformed or dropped out in response to the lack of safety and support. No student should feel scared going to school.
Unfortunately, federal civil rights laws do not expressly protect students from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Congress will soon consider the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would prohibit public schools from discriminating against any student on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
Tell your representatives in Congress to pass this law and protect our nation’s LGBT youth.
