It's time to end the exclusion of the LGBT civil rights movement from history and social sciences.

Tell Governor Brown to sign the FAIR Education Act -- a bill that would ensure that students learn about the LGBT rights movement and the contributions of LGBT people.

http://www.eqca.org/siteapps/advocacy/ActionItem.aspx?c=kuLRJ9MRKrH&b=4025663&aid=16257 The FAIR Education Act has passed the California Senate and Assembly. It now goes to Governor Brown for his signature. Not only would the bill ensure that history classes teach about the contributions of LGBT Americans, it would also ensure that LGBT people are never represented negatively in classrooms just because they are LGBT.

Anti-equality organizations like the California Family Council and the Capitol Resource Institute are mobilizing their bases and trying to convince the Governor to veto the bill. I think we can keep the Governor's support, but we have to act fast. We have to show him that we care about this issue even more than our opponents do.

Let Governor Brown know how important it is to you that students learn about our movement for equality, just as they learn about other movements for equality.

http://www.eqca.org/siteapps/advocacy/ActionItem.aspx?c=kuLRJ9MRKrH&b=4025663&aid=16257

This bill will make schools safer for LGBT youth, reducing bullying through increased understanding. And it will help future generations understand why all people must be treated equally, regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The last step for this bill is the Governor's signature. Please tell him today to sign this critical bill.

In Solidarity,
Roland Palencia
Executive Director
Equality California
