We're SO glad to see so many people standing up for such an important cause!
To recap, earlier this week we were horrified and disgusted to hear about a PRINCIPAL at Sequoyah High School in Tennessee who shoved and verbally harassed 17-year-old senior Chris Sigler for refusing to take off a shirt promoting the establishment of a gay-straight alliance (GSA) club on campus!
Then earlier today, we learned that there was even MORE bigotry and close-mindedness going on in that SAME school system in Monroe County!
Apparently, the school couldn't claim a GSA because they couldn't find ANY faculty sponsors! WTF!
Fortunately, there's some light at the end of this tunnel! We're now hearing that the gsanetwork's Make It Better Campaign has gotten over 40,000 signatures from people who are "demanding an investigation of a principal's alleged assault of a student for wearing a pro-GSA shirt." AMAZING!!!!
The Make It Better Campaign is seeking to not only investigate this awful principal in Tennessee, but they want to make it national and spread the word to principals all over the country that Gay-Straight Alliance clubs are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT and MUST be supported by school systems/faculty EVERYWHERE!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
