End the Boy Scouts' ban on gay parents and adult leaders: Start a petition today!

In just 3 easy steps, you can launch a campaign urging your local troop, pack, council, or lodge to reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy.

1) Who do you want to petition? This should say the name of your local pack, troop, council, or lodge.

2) What do you want them to do? This could say "Reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy"

3) Why is this important? Zach has started this for you, but you need to fill in the rest. First insert your city and state. Then insert your local Boy Scout troop, pack, council, or lodge name. And don’t forget to tell your story and explain why this matters to you personally.

DON'T FORGET! Once you've created your petition, click "Edit" to add email addresses of local Boy Scout leadership to your targeting so they know when people sign your petition. You'll also want to add a photo to your petition. We recommend your local troop, pack, council, or lodge's logo, if you have one handy. Or you can use a picture of yourself in uniform.
