We owe it to our kids…#PRIDE

   June 17, 2022

We owe it to our kids to come together and make this a country where people of all backgrounds, races, and genders have the freedom to be valued and affirmed.  We must demand that all kids have the freedom to be themselves, find a sense of community and belonging with their peers, and pursue their dreams. This year radical right extremists plotted to:

  • require teachers and guidance counselors to “out” LGBTQ+ youth to their parents (HB 1431).

  • keep our teachers from teaching an honest and accurate history of racial and gender discrimination in higher education (HB 1313).

  • repeal the ban on the discredited and dangerous practice of conversion therapy in NH.

  • restrict inclusive participation in sports, denying kids the opportunity to learn about teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership (HB 198).

  • criminalize parents that seek to provide gender affirming care for their children. (HB1651)

  • override nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people under the guise of religious liberty (HB 542).
