Vote NO on HB800 and HB529 on March 23
Dear [title] [last name],
Please, vote NO on HB800 and HB529 on March 23 in the Education Instruction Subcommittee.
Whether schools allow parents to opt their children out of instruction about LGBTQ issues or they ban information about LGBTQ issues in textbooks, the effect of these bills is to say that there is something wrong with students based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. That is always a destructive message, especially when youth face so many challenges such as bullying and suicide. Censoring and excluding content also runs counter to the First Amendment.
Thank you for considering my views.
