Gay/straight alliances are UNDER ATTACK!
A recent study conducted in Massachusetts shows that LGBT teens are over five times more likely to have attempted suicide than their peers. The same study shows that gay youth are three times more likely than their peers to miss school because of feeling unsafe. They are also three times more likely to have been injured at school.
Gay/straight alliances in schools provide safe places for LGBT youth to meet. These clubs build community spirit, mutual understanding, promote tolerance, and combat homophobia.
But anti-gay organizations are trying to stop Massachusetts from making schools safe for LGBT students. The scary part is that if we don't act now we could actually lose this one!
Governor Mitt Romney has vetoed the funding that we need to keep LGBT students safe in schools.
However, we can override his veto if we have enough votes. To override his veto we will need 105 legislators in the House to vote with us. That means the anti-gay groups only need 53 votes to beat us!
Anti-gay organizations are having hundreds of people make calls to a targeted group of state legislators to try and stop the funding for gay/straight alliances. They are even having people that live in other states call OUR state legislators!
We need to be calling these same legislators and telling them to vote to override the governor's veto.
Start by calling your own legislators.
Use our list to contact legislators and convince them to make schools safe for ALL students!
