Hackensack BOE Trustee Frances Cogelja sent homophobic and offensive emails, in her official capacity, expressing her "disgust" over a new state law requiring public schools incorporate positive contributions from members of the LGBT community in middle and high school curriculum. Cogelja described the law as "repugnant" and "incredibly disturbing."

In one email, she wrote that "Everywhere I turn, this alternate lifestyle narrative is being shoved done [sic] our children's throats. Where does it end???"

Frances Cogelja is using her position to ensure that LGBT members of our community are treated like second-class citizens. These comments are unacceptable and disrespect every member of the LGBT community, their friends and family, and their allies. This is unacceptable.

Sign and share this petition and demand she resign immediately.
