Massachusetts Schools Anti-Bullying Bill
The Massachusetts Senate is scheduled to vote on Anti-Bullying Bill
(S 2283) possibly today March 11th. The bill requires schools
to develop procedures to prevent or stop bullying & increasingly
pervasive cyber-bullying by students. LGBT kids & the children of
LGBT parents are frequently the targets of some of the most vicious
& cruel forms of bullying & cyber-bullying. News stories of young
bullying victims driven to suicide or violence necessitates quick
action by our legislature. While there is no silver bullet to heal the
lifetime of scars bullying can inflict, this bill forces schools to begin
the process of prevention and training to protect at risk populations,
like LGBT kids.
"Well, if defending LGBT kids & the kids of LGBT families makes
MGLPC a 'slick special interest', then we're proud to say we are!
Call or email your state senator before Thursday (3/11/) & ask
them to support Anti-Bullying Bill S2283." Arline Isaacson Co-Chair
of The Massachusetts Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus stated.
MGLPC has been working extensively on Anti-Bullying legislation.
