The “Don’t Say Gay/Trans” bill (HB616) is a divisive and unnecessary piece of legislation. This dangerous bill prevents teachers from providing materials or teaching about LGBTQ+ issues. It also censors honest dialogue in the classroom about systemic racism, gender, and racial discrimination. Teachers will be unable to provide safe and inclusive environments for students, further stigmatizing and isolating LGBTQ+ people and people of color. This bill is a shameful effort by the Ohio State Legislature to erase and marginalize historically oppressed voices inside and outside of the classroom.
Rush a message to Speaker Cupp to OPPOSE “Don’t Say Gay/Trans” bill!
