Victory

From Petition Organizer: Over 1900 people signed the petition, raising awareness to the issue and showing support for Bill 18 to the Education Minister in Manitoba.

This bill is important because it will create legislation that allows bullying behaviours to be investigated by teachers and administrators. The bill supports the inclusion of a GSA (gay-straight alliance) in all schools (public or independent) if a student requests to start one.  Let our Education Minister know that you believe in what our Provincial Governmetn is creating - safe schools for all.

To:
Hon. Nancy Allen, Education Minister - Manitoba Provincial Government
We believe in safe schools for everyone. The amendments in Bill 18 will create safe and welcoming environments for students in ALL schools, public and independent. The inclusion of GSAs in schools for students that want to start them will let gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and two-spirit students know that they matter. Thank you for creating safer schools for ALL students.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      There has always been groups of religious people intent on combating equality under the banner of religious freedom. They were there to oppose racial equality; there to oppose gender equality; and now they're here to oppose equality of all sexual orientations.

      I have seen the difference that GSAs can make in a student's life. A safe, welcoming place is necessary for positive growth and development.
