Your GLSEN Arizona Inclusive Policy Postcard 6.29.2024



Greetings GLSENeer,


It's Arizona's Legislative Session Report Card Time! 


Take a look at how your legislators fared this session with the GLSEN Arizona 2024 Legislative Session Report Card for LGBTQIA2S+ support. 


It is clear that opponents of LGBTQIA2S+ Arizonans are not stopping; whether they are seeking to go around the Governor and put harmful and unconstitutional language on the ballot to ensnaring librarians, biology, and affirming educators in felony book bans. Read on for more.


YOUR VOTE MATTERS! Register to vote here in upcoming elections! Deadline for the 2024 Primary Election is Jul 1, 2024. Early ballots will be mailed Jul 3, 2024. 


Programming Note: The Policy Postcard will be taking a break next week, so look for us in your inbox Jul 13, 2024!


LEGISLATIVE SESSION


OUR 2024 LEGISLATIVE SESSION Report Card FOR LGBTQIA2S+ SUPPORT


GLSEN Arizona graded five bills we’ve asked you to take action on from the 2024 Legislative Session for the Report Card: SCR 1013, SB 1182, SB 1511, SB 1628, and HB 2310


These five bills represent a spectrum of threats leveled against the LGBTQIA2S+ Arizonans, especially toward youth and educators. This report card reflects the votes of all ninety legislators compared to the actions we asked you to take to defeat these proposals. Even with a traditional ten-point grading scale, more than half of the Legislature scored an ‘F’ grade, opting to vote not to support LGBTQIA2S+ Arizonans. 


Our work is not finished and our journey toward freedom marches on. GLSEN Arizona is committed to advocating for inclusive policies, affirming ordinances, and advancing justice for everyone! 

  1. Check out how your legislators fared this Session with the GLSEN Arizona Inclusive Policy Report Card for the 2024 Legislative Session. Find your District and Legislators here.
