Ban Conversion Therapy in the City of Dallas
We call on Mayor Mike Rawlings and the Dallas City Council to enact a city ban on Conversion Therapy, the dangerous, religion based, psychological treatment which promises to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity. Mainstream medical bodies state that conversion therapy is harmful because it exploits guilt and anxiety, thereby damaging self-esteem and leading to depression and even suicide. There is also concern in the mental health community that the advancement of conversion therapy causes social harm by disseminating inaccurate views about sexual orientation and the ability of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people to lead happy, healthy lives. Key players in the new Trump administration are pushers of this snake oil and we call on our city leaders to ban this incredibly dangerous practice in our city. We call on the people of Dallas to stand with their LGBTQIA brothers and sisters by signing and sharing this petition.
