All youth should feel safe and confident at school, but many LGBT youth face bullying and harassment so severe that they feel there is no way out. Seth’s Law, named after 13-year-old Seth Walsh of Central California who took his own life after years of bullying at school, would enhance existing anti-bullying laws by tightening anti-bullying policies in schools and instituting better training for teachers and administrators. Ask your legislators to support this important bill.
Although California has adopted anti-bullying legislation, LGBT youth are still subject to harassment, intimidation and bullying. Seth's Law will tighten anti-bullying policies in California schools by ensuring that all schools have clear and consistent policies, and instituting better training and clearer guidelines for teachers and administrators. AB 9 will help create a respectful and safe environment for all students.
Please support this important bill and help all of California’s youth to thrive and succeed.
