🌀ACTION ALERT: OPPOSE SB 1320 "DON'T SAY LGBTQ EXPANSION BILL" BEFORE MONDAY




Members & Friends,


Hatred and cruelty against vulnerable populations know no bounds with DeSantis and his army of right-wing extremists in the FL Legislature. SB 1320 – aka “Don’t Say LGBTQ Expansion Bill” – will be heard in its first Senate Committee on Monday and we need you to OPPOSE it. The bill does the following:

  • Expands the "Don't Say Gay" law by banning school districts from acknowledging the existence of LGBTQ people in preK - 8th grade; such instruction must be “age appropriate” in grades 9-12;

  • Adds pre-K, private and charter schools to the law;

  • Forbids use of pronouns that align with transgender students’ or staff’s gender identity up through 12th grade;

  • Strips local School Boards of the right to choose reproductive health related course materials and preempts it to the state under the direction of political appointees;

  • Makes it easier for parents or interested parties to challenge books in schools and bans these challenged books until a review is complete.

Remember that free states do not ban books or people! Contact the legislators below before Monday and urge them to VOTE NO on SB 1320. Then please share this Action Alert widely. Senator Corey Simon (R), Chair (850) 487-5003 Senator Danny Burgess (R), Vice Chair (850) 487-5023 Senator Bryan Avila (R) (850) 487-5039 Senator Lori Berman (D) (850) 487-5026 Senator Alexis Calatayud (R) (850) 487-5038 Senator Jay Collins (R) (850) 487-5014 Senator Erin Grall (R) (850) 487-5029 Senator Travis Hutson (R) (850) 487-5007 Senator Shevrin D.
