Take THAT slushie facial, bullies!!
President Obama has officially endorsed the SNDA, SSIA anti-bullying bills!!!
The bills seek to end student discrimination with two different methods…
SNDA prohibits harassment in public elementary and secondary schools based on a student's actual or perceived LGBT status, while SSIA requires schools to adopt anti-bullying codes of conduct.
A spokesman for the White House, Shin Inouye, states:
The president and his administration have taken many steps to address the issue of bullying. He is proud to support the Student Non-Discrimination Act, introduced by Senator Franken and Congressman Polis, and the Safe Schools Improvement Act, introduced by Senator Casey and Congresswoman Linda Sanchez. These bills will help ensure that all students are safe and healthy and can learn in environments free from discrimination, bullying and harassment.
Such a beautiful day!!
We're SO close to finally being able to live in a country where bullying in schools, even bullying regarding LGBT status, will NOT be tolerated!!!
The White House also created a rainbow timeline, chronicling the many ways Obama and his team have worked to help the LGBT community.
