Sign the Petition in supporting the Teach LGBT NY Bill, also known as the LGBT Awareness Curriculum or Instruction Bill A4744/S1478 sponsored by Assemblywoman Seawright & Senator Hoylman that would require the NYS Education Department to develop educational curriculum or instruction on the historical treatment of and contributions by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in America, especially including the LGBTQ civil rights movement and accomplishments.
Awareness of the LGBTQ community and history is important to increasing support and admiration in schools, which will have a direct impact on student performance, wellbeing, and safety. It is critical that LGBTQ students learn about and see the contributions of other LGBTQ individuals to society and American History to understand that they equally belong and have a place in our schools and society. The LGBT Network believes that WE CAN MAKE HISTORY WHEN WE TEACH LGBT HISTORY!
By signing the petition you will be sending the important message that you support the Teach LGBT NY Bill that will mandate the NYS Education Department to provide education instruction on the political, economic, and social contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
