AB 2943 District Day of Action

What does AB 2943 do?

AB 2943 prohibits individuals, whether a pastor, clergy, or licensed therapist, from: advertising sexual orientation change efforts, offering to engage in sexual orientation change efforts, and engaging in sexual orientation change efforts. This legislation also bans books that are aimed at helping individuals deal with sexual orientation and gender identity questions.

AB 2943 has made it’s way through the CA State Assembly and is now making it’s way through the State Senate. AB 2943 will be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, June 25th. We expect that it will pass there. This is why we have formed the District Day of Action.

Once the bill passes the Appropriations Committee, it will be voted on by the entire Senate. Your senator needs to hear from you. The most effective way to make an impact is for people to communicate their opposition to those elected to represent them.
