This Thursday, May 12th, Forum For Equality Louisiana, in collaboration with local and statewide organizations, will be bringing the Safe Schools bill, House Bill 112, before the Louisiana House Education Committee.
We ask for your support of House Bill 112 – anti-bullying policy for public elementary and secondary schools throughout Louisiana.
The passage of the Safe Schools Bill will strengthen our public elementary and secondary schools and protect all students from the detrimental and isolating effects of bullying. This legislation aims to combat peer victimization that is motivated by actual or perceived characteristics. As detailed in the bill, those characteristics includes race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, physical characteristics, political persuasion, mental disability, or physical disability.
ACTION NEEDED BY ALL LOUISIANA CITIZENS THAT SUPPORT EQUALITY AND SAFER SCHOOLS!
