ACLU and Yale launch campaign to stop censoring LGBT websites in schools
ACLU has teamed up with Yale Law School to launch the “Don’t Filter Me” campaign, which aims to stop censorship of websites in public high schools.
The ACLU blog post reports that some schools have been blocking LGBT-related websites such as the GSA Network and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
These schools even allow students to access to anti-LGBT sites that condemn LGBT people or urge LGBT people to try to change our sexual orientation. The ACLU describes this as viewpoint discrimination.
ACLU asks students to report unconstitutional web filtering at their schools by filling out a form at action.aclu.org/dontfilterme.
