Petition Closed

My name is Caleb Laieski, 16, of Arizona.

As a bullied gay youth who had to drop out of school for safety reasons, I am currently working on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to get support for the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would require schools to include sexual orientation and gender identity in their current non-discrimination policy.

Please join me in asking Chairman John Kline, Chair of the Education and the Workforce Committee, to bring this key legislation up for discussion in the committee.

Letter to
The Honorable Chairman Kline
As a concerned citizen, I am requesting that you allow the Student Non-Discrimination Act a hearing in the Education and Workforce Committee at the earliest opportunity.

The issue of safe schools is an important issue to many of us, and I think we can all come together to say that we want safe schools.
