Family Equality Council Praises Obama Administration For Endorsing Safe Schools Bills
Washington, DC – (Apr. 20, 2012) – Family Equality Council, which connects, supports, and represents the one million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) parents raising two million children in the U.S., today thanked President Obama for endorsing the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA) and the Safe Schools Improvement Act (SSIA).
“No student should have to face harassment or intimidation during the school day because of who they are or who their families are,” said Executive Director Jennifer Chrisler.”Every day students face bullying, either because of their own sexual orientation or gender identity, or that of their friends and family. The President clearly recognizes how important the passage of these bills is to the health and well being of our families.”
