Action Alert: Stand up for LGBTQ+ Students and Staff at PUSD on 5/11/23

At the last meeting of Peoria Unified School District, reason and compassion prevailed against discrimination.

Board members voted 3-2 to reject a policy that would ban trans students from using bathrooms that align with their gender identity. Members heard more of the same old culture war rhetoric from the religious right… but they also heard voices of reason like this.

Backlash is expected from Christian nationalists—some of whom will be coming from out of district—at the next meeting this Thursday. They’ll be prepared to spout more misinformation about LGBTQ+ people. And they’ll be fired up by member Rebecca Hill’s outrageous comments that members should pull their kids out of the district over the issue.

We need to rally for equality and sanity.

What you can do:

  • Attend the next PUSD Governing Board meeting May 11th 6PM 6330 West Thunderbird Rd. Speak up if you can or just show up early and fill seats.
  • Take inspiration from the video above… or even pull facts from our bombshell speaker last Friday about religious hypocrisy on child abuse.

Hope to see you there.
