The Associated Press interviews Make It Better Summer & GSA Network youth trainer Irene Rojas-Carroll at the GLBT History Museum: "We never should have been excluded in the first place, but it's great that now we are going to be included."
GSA Network youth leader and intern, Javi Pinedo, argues for the FAIR Education Act in this ABC 7 News clip. The FAIR Education (SB 48) would end the exclusion of the LGBT civil rights movement from California's history classes. The bill has already passed the state Senate and Assembly. If Governor Brown signs it in the next few days, California will become the first state to require the fair and accurate representation of LGBT people in history and social science classes.
