Seth’s Law is at risk. This critical bill, named after Seth Walsh, who took his own life after years of bullying at school, would tighten anti-bullying policies in schools, helping LGBT students to be safe and ensuring that more youth don't take their own lives because of bullying. Stand with Speaker Perez and Chairman Fuentes. Help them pass the bill through the Appropriations Committee without paring it down. Our youth deserve to be fully protected.
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.
