Out of the closets
and into the classrooms


On behalf of the FAIR Education Act Implementation Coalition–which OFC convened and leads–we were honored to accept SF Pride’s José Julio Sarria History Maker Award.

But we have more work to do before our children's history and social science curriculum is fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful of LGBTQ people.

School districts across the state are just now beginning to adopt the new textbooks and explore how to teach this material well. Help us provide the training and support they need to do this job well.

Take Action

How can we #SaveSCOTUS from another anti-LGBTQ justice?

  

Trump's nominee to fill the SCOTUS vacancy will be the swing vote on basic civil rights: the right to control our own bodies; to marry whom we choose; to affordable healthcare; to be protected from gun violence, and so much more.

 

Brett Kavanaugh is on record in opposition to all of these, and has been nominated by a president under serious ongoing federal investigation – one whose validity the Supreme Court itself will most likely be asked to ajudicate.

 

From salvaging the Affordable Care Act to insisting on an end to family separations at the border, we know our voices make a difference. Call the Senate switchboard to tell your senator you demand they reject this extremist, and that this vacancy be filled using the process afforded the Scalia vacancy – i.e., only after the people weigh in with this fall's midterm elections – and after the nominating president is cleared of federal crimes. If you know they hold that position, let them know you support that and have their backs.

 

And if you have friends or family in AK, CO, IN, KY, ME, MT, NV, ND, or WV – states whose senators' votes are potentially in question – let them know now is the time for all of our senators to hear from us loud and clear.

    We can and must defeat this anti-LGBTQ family amendment

    Every week we are faced with another gratuitous challenge to the gains LGBTQ people and our families had so recently made, or an affront to human decency. This week it’s both. On Wednesday, the House Appropriations Committee approved a harshly anti-LGBTQ family amendment to an existing bill, allowing child service agencies widespread license to discriminate […]

    Families Belong Together

    On June 20th the Trump Administration signed an executive order apparently stopping their policy of separating families at the border. This is a false victory, with severe repercussions. The executive order, known as “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation,” still allows for continued prosecution of immigrant families and will encourage their indefinite incarceration–only now, together. There is […]

    Win, lose, or draw: we still have work to do!

    Dear families and friends: This morning’s Supreme Court ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case wasn’t a win, or a loss: it was a draw. “Religious exemption” arguments may not be used to justify discrimination against LGBTQ people. And LGBTQ people in the 19 states who are currently protected – as in California – remain just as protected today as we were […]
