Tell Lawmakers: It's Time To Ban Conversion Therapy in the United States!
So-called "conversion therapy," sometimes known as "reparative therapy," is a range of dangerous and discredited practices that falsely claim to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. Such practices have been rejected by every mainstream medical and mental health organization for decades, but due to continuing discrimination and societal bias against LGBTQ people, some practitioners continue to conduct conversion therapy. petitie tekenenpetitie tekenen
To date, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico all have laws or regulations protecting youth from this harmful practice. It's long past time that the rest of the country follows suit - and bans conversion therapy!
Conversion therapy is discredited, its harmful, and it has been condemned by organizations including the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Assocation, and the National Association of Social Workers, among many others.
Join the Human Rights Commission in calling on Congress to ban this harmful practice once and for all!
