Help support a proposed ban on conversion therapy in New York! Write to your New York legislators here to show your support for this ban.
Over 20,000 LGBTQ youth are at risk of experiencing this trauma. Help make sure this doesn't happen!
"Your legislators have the opportunity to ban the dangerous and discredited practice of “conversion therapy” once and for all. Act now to support a pending conversion therapy ban in your state!
Proposed bills would prevent medical professionals from engaging in harmful practices, such as the use of shame, verbal abuse, and even aversion techniques like electric shocks, to “alter” the sexual orientation or gender identity of LGBTQ youth.
The nation’s leading medical and mental health organizations have come out against these practices because of the serious health risks they pose for LGBTQ youth -- risks such as depression, guilt, hopelessness, and suicidal thoughts/behaviors". - Sarah Munshi
