Vote NO on HB529 and HB800 in Education Instruction committees

Dear [title] [last name],

Please, vote NO on HB529 in the Education Instruction Committee on March31. If you are also a member of the Education Instruction Subcommittee, please also vote NO on HB800 on March 30. I strongly oppose both bills.

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.

summary

Both these bills are trying to inhibit LGBTQ content in our public schools. If it sounds like censorship, it is.
