"Homosexuality in Schools" Bill to Become Law Jan. 1st, 2001
Pacific Justice Institute Counters with Opt-Out Program
2000 12 28
Sacramento, CA - Beginning January 1, 2001, two bills will go into effect as California law. AB1785 requires pro-homosexual tolerance education at all public schools and all grade levels, including Kindergarten.
A similar bill going into effect, AB1931 will provide taxpayer funded grants to take children on field trips to teach them diversity and tolerance of homosexuality.
To counter this assault upon the rights of many parents whose personal or religious beliefs do not agree with this non-academic instruction, the Pacific Justice Institute launched today its Parental Opt Out Program. This program will provide a standard opt out form for parents wishing to ensure that their children are not exposed to such controversial and potentially harmful social instruction.
In addition, the Pacific Justice Institute is offering free emergency legal counsel to all parents either having questions about the form or facing these controversial school activities.
"Without question, California is a pluralistic state with parents having a wide range of values regarding what is best for their children," said Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute. "It is our goal to ensure that the public school districts in this state will still respect such diversity in view of these controversial laws."
Parents wishing to order a copy of this opt out form can do so by contacting the Pacific Justice Institute at our toll free number 1-888-305-9129.
Please feel free to forward this press release to any person you feel would be impacted by these new laws.
The Pacific Justice Institute is a non-profit 501(c)(3) legal defense organization specializing in the defense of religious freedom, parental rights, and other civil liberties.
