Action Alert

Please support Minn. bill to ban conversion therapy!

The Minnesota Legislature is considering a good bill to ban conversion therapy for children and vulnerable adults. We need your help to make sure it passes.

The bill, HF 12, would protect LGBTQ Minnesotans from the barbaric religious treatment deceitfully called “conversion therapy.” Additionally, this bill prohibits the “misrepresentation of conversion therapy services or products.”

Conversion therapy is a dangerous and discredited practice aimed at altering a child’s sexual orientation or gender identity, often basing the “therapy” in religious shame and guilt. Many governmental health organizations have denounced the practice as both physically and psychologically traumatizing. Individuals who endure this so-called treatment are at a higher risk for suicide and depression. Read more.

The Minnesota House Commerce Committee is having a hearing on the bill tomorrow, Tuesday March 12, in Room 200 of the State Office Building at 2:30 p.m. Please use our simple, automated system to contact the members of the committee and ask them to support this bill. If you would like to attend the meeting, please sign in and register your support for the bill.
