Late Tuesday the Brevard County School Board unanimously voted to reject a proposal to add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the school’s nondiscrimination ordinance, after reading a letter from Liberty Counsel and hearing from nearly 100 parents who spoke in opposition to the LGBT policy.

“Liberty Counsel salutes the many parents who stood up in opposition to this dangerous policy change. We win when we show up,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The vote to reject this proposal represents another victory for families and religious liberty.”

Liberty Counsel stands with parents to defend their children against such attacks on their rights of free speech, religion, and privacy. In a letter to the school board, Liberty Counsel said, “These are bad policies that chill free speech and threaten religious liberties, and Liberty Counsel stands ready to defend Brevard County schools if they should resist, and we stand ready to challenge the county if it should enact these policies.”

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
