An Open Letter

To: Rep. Ciscomani

From: A verified voter in Tucson, AZ

June 29

The proposed legislation raises concerns about infringing upon the rights of LGBTQ+ students and promoting discriminatory practices within educational institutions. Restricting discussions and representations of gender identity and sexual orientation can foster an unwelcoming and isolating environment for LGBTQ+ youth. Numerous studies have highlighted the detrimental impacts of such censorship on the mental health and well-being of these students. It is crucial to cultivate an inclusive and affirming atmosphere in schools, allowing for open dialogues that foster understanding, acceptance, and support for all students, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Denying access to information and resources related to these topics can perpetuate stigma, marginalization, and a lack of support for LGBTQ+ students during their formative years. I urge you to reconsider this legislation and instead prioritize measures that promote diversity, inclusivity, and the holistic development of all students. Embracing and respecting the identities and experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals is essential for creating safe and nurturing educational environments that empower students to reach their full potential.
