We are proud to announce that the Vermont Legislative Bill H.412 Passes both VT House & Senate at the end of last week.  This is important news for young people all over Vermont – this bill strengthens the required response of Vermont schools to harassment.  Many thanks to our partners at the Vermont Human Rights Commission and other queer organizations around the state who helped educate Vermont lawmakers on the positive impact that this bill will have toward creating safer schools for all Vermont youth.

The bill now heads to Governor Shumlin’s desk, where he is expected to sign it into law!

Please email your representatives and senators and thank them for standing with queer youth!
