After July 1, 2012 California law offers greater protections for LGBTQ and Gender-Creative Students!
Betty DeGeneres and Southern California students have a wonderful message for school board members, school administrators and LGBTQ and gender-creative students and their families across the state.
We need your help getting this information out to schools and students. Please send a link to this page to your local school administrators and post it on your social media sites; let’s make this good news go viral!
California School Board Members, Administrators, Teachers, Students & their Families: We have a great deal to celebrate! As of July 1, 2012 there are BIG changes in California’s school laws for all kids including, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender-creative students. These changes require that school employees act immediately when bullying takes place, that every bullying complaint must be processed in a very specific way, that schools must also address cyberbullying and, if your school doesn’t protect you, you have new options for transferring to a new school district. As a result of California’s AB 9 (Seth’s Law) and AB 1156 (Tabitha’s Law), there are other big changes too!
