MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Lobbying Congress on Humanist Issues

Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Senator Mark Warner of Virginia (the state where I grew up) at a gathering on Capitol Hill. While certainly the debt crisis is the big issue facing Congress right now, it was a great opportunity to lobby for the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would extend protections to students who are bullied based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Humanists are committed to the rights of young people to live free from harassment and discrimination, and we are proud to support this important bill. Thank you if you have already taken action, but if you haven’t yet, visit our Action Alert page for the latest updates.
