San Jose Sharks Please make an "It Gets Better" video

    1. Petition by

      Gloria Nieto

      San Jose, CA

San Jose Sharks, stand up against anti-gay bullying and homophobia in the National Hockey League!

In an unprecedented move, the San Francisco Giants have released their own It Gets Better video, and supporters of LGBT rights from coast to coast, border to border and beyond have begun writing to their teams asking them to follow suit. (UPDATE: Just a few days ago, the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox announced they are going to make It Gets Better videos as well!)

This petition is for all fans, home or away, of the San Jose Sharks imploring the men in teal to stand up for what's right, and let it ring loud and clear from the Shark Tank across the United States and Canada "It Gets Better"!

Be the first team in the National Hockey League to step forward and make a huge difference for many hockey fans!
