Teach LGBT history, contributions in school

Fri, 07/08/2011

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.  

Call the Governor at 916-445-2841 and follow the prompts to show your support for SB 48!
