Why this petition matters

Started by Shannon Cuttle

The principal of Flour Bluff High School, a public high school in Corpus Christi, Texas, has repeatedly rejected a student's application for a Gay-Straight Alliance on campus. Not only is this homophobic, it breaks federal anti-discrimination laws.

Under the Equal Access Act, federally-funded secondary schools must provide equal access to extracurricular clubs. The act also grants equal access on school grounds and inside school publications to student groups. This includes Gay-Straight Alliances on campus.

Please sign the petition below to urge school officials to approve Flour Bluff High School senior Bianca "Nikki" Peet's application to start a Gay-Straight Alliance on campus and create a safe spaces for all students.
