Ban Conversion Therapy in North Dakota

“Conversion therapy, sometimes referred to as “reparative therapy,” is any of several dangerous and discredited practices aimed at changing an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Conversion therapists use a variety of shaming, emotionally traumatic or physically painful stimuli to make their victims associate those stimuli with their LGBTQ identities.” The Trevor Project.

Conversion therapy is still legal in the state of North Dakota, even despite the fact that it has been proven to be an ineffective and abusive practice.

LGBT youth need to be protected—rejecting them and putting them through such practices leads to higher rates of depression, suicide, and drug use. It’s our civil duty to protect our children.

I, myself, am a teenager, and several of my friends and family members are LGBT, living in North Dakota. They deserve protection from this harmful practice. They deserve to be who they are. Because they are not only my friends and family, they are human beings, who deserve the right to exist as they are with no conditions.

I am asking for your support. Sign this petition, call North Dakotan representatives and demand they follow in the footsteps of other states and outlaw conversion therapy. And most importantly, SHARE THIS PETITION! Copy the link and send it to your friends and family, post it on social media, get the word out any way you can.

Demand they pass a bill banning the practice of conversion therapy:

Doug Burgum, ND governor: (701) 328-2200

ND legislature: Contact information

You have the power to make a change.

If you live outside North Dakota, I urge you to still sign this petition and share it. We need your support.
