Fight for LGBTQ+ Youth: Don’t pass HR 734 and HR5
Contact your legislators TODAY!
Keshet, along with our partners, is mobilizing the Jewish community to send a clear message: LGBTQ+ rights are a Jewish value. Take action by contacting your representatives to stop the transphobic and anti-LGBTQ+ bills HR 734 and HR 5.
Did you know…
- HR 734 would ban transgender and intersex youth from playing on school sports teams, taking away the important social and health benefits, and the opportunities to build skills like teamwork, cooperation, and leadership we know kids get from playing sports. (GLAD)
- HR 5 would insert the federal government as a national school board, undermine local control, and hurt the ability of both parents and teachers to support children. At a moment when we are already seeing dangerous moves toward school censorship and book bans, this unprecedented federal government interference would disrupt the public education system, undermine our communities, especially LGBTQ+ families and families of color, and cut LGBTQ+ youth off from accessing the resources and support they need to thrive.
