LBGTQ History Mandate

The Illinois House voted to approve HB 246, a bill which will require that all materials used in government schools teach the roles and contributions of people who define themselves by their disordered sexual desires. Equality Illinois and the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance are behind it.

In addition, this bill will require that "the teaching of history of the United States in public schools shall include a study of the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State."

Take ACTION: Send a message to your state senator and to Gov. Pritzker to ask them to let them know that a good many Illinois voters oppose this effort to politicize curricula in order to advance biased beliefs about sexuality to children in government schools.
