Stand Against The Ordinance

Lafayette Citizens for Freedom started this petition to West Lafayette City Council

We stand opposed to West Lafayette's proposed Ordinance 31-21.

If enacted, it would criminalize faith-based counseling to minors on issues related to human sexuality with the threat of a fine from the police of $1000 per day. While we do not condone Conversion Therapy, 31-21’s definition of “Conversion Therapy” casts such a wide net that it knowingly or unknowingly undermines:

  • personal liberty (people should have the right to select the counselor of their choice),
  • parental rights (parents must be the ones who choose their child’s counselor),
  • religious liberty / the separation of church and state (faith-based counselors must have the freedom to counsel people based on their deeply held religious convictions without government harassment or discrimination).

Help us oppose Ordinance 31-21 by signing the petition!
