Ban Conversion Therapy In Rhode Island

This petition had 2,026 supporters

"Conversion Therapy" falsely proposes to change one’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression. The practice is both harmful and discredited, but due to continuing prejudice towards LGBTQ people, some continue to practice conversion therapy . . . even in Rhode Island.

Youth do not have the power to refuse the treatment. It is forced on young people who are often already made vulnerable by societal prejudice and religious beliefs that tell them they need to be fixed instead of loved.

Rhode Island is currently considering legislation to ban conversion therapy for minors: House bill # H5277 and Senate bill # S267. These bills need public pressure to get them to a vote.
