State Legislators and LGBT Leaders
NCLR worked with Equality California in 2012 to draft and pass California’s Senate Bill 1172—the first law in the country protecting LGBT youth from so-called “conversion therapists” who try to change their sexual orientation or gender identity. In the following years, NCLR worked with legislators and equality groups like Garden State Equality and SMYAL to pass similar laws in New Jersey and Washington, D.C
NCLR is now working with legislators and LGBT leaders in dozens of other states to pass similar laws. If you are considering legislation in your state, please contact BornPerfect@NCLRights.org.
A broad range of bipartisan supporters—including those representing mental health, faith, civil rights, youth advocacy, and reproductive justice groups—have come out in favor of efforts to end conversion therapy. More than 100 leaders and organizations have signed onto the efforts so far. To add your name or organization, contact BornPerfect@NCLRights.org.
