Urge Gov. Murphy to Veto Bill Mandating Transgender Identity Lessons for Kindergarteners

January 15

Dear Friends,

As you have heard, the Senate and Assembly have passed a bill that mandates sexual orientation and gender identity diversity lessons starting in kindergarten. This will only complicate and confuse the understanding of human sexuality for these very young children.

  • The original bill was approved by the Assembly on Oct. 29, 2020. It only mandated these sexual orientation and gender identity diversity lessons in 9th-12th grade.
  • However, the Senate approved an amended version on Dec. 17, 2020. Their amendment required these human sexuality lessons beginning in kindergarten.
  • On Jan. 11, 2021, the Assembly voted in favor of this amendment to lower the age of students learning about human sexuality from 14 years old to 5 years old!

Gender identity lessons present an unscientific and unhealthy view of human sexuality. It indoctrinates students with the idea that a person’s gender is different than a person’s gender expression and might be different than a person’s biological sex. This conversation should be left to parents to have with their child at an appropriate age.

We need you to contact Gov. Murphy to urge him to respect the fundamental religious beliefs of millions of New Jersey citizens by vetoing this legislation. Please protect the minds and the bodies of children in New Jersey.

Thank you for spreading the word!
