Bryce Axel-Adams started this petition to SMCSC School Board

Teachers have been told that they must remove pride flags from their classrooms because the school board wants to avoid being sued for seeming to only support one side (whatever that means). I understand the fear of lawsuits but sometimes you have to take risks to support your students. Having a pride flag is one of the clearest ways to say "I support you, and I'm here for you. You are loved." That is so important for LGBTQ+ youth, we have always been told that teachers will always be there for us, and being able to easily identify teachers we can safely go to is extremely important to our mental health. As Desmond Tutu once said, “It means a great deal to those who are oppressed to know that they are not alone. Never let anyone tell you that what you are doing is insignificant.”
