When my friend Jolie Justus emailed after the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling, she remarked that we still had much work to do.
She's right, and that's especially true when it comes to protecting LGBT youth -- children -- who have one of the highest suicide rates in the country.
That's one of the reasons I was actually kind of surprised to hear that Republican Senator Roy Blunt voted against a bill designed to protect students in our schools from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Sign my petition if you believe it's time for the Senate to act to keep our children safe from discrimination in our schools.
Senator Blunt has spent a long time on the wrong side of history when it comes to issues of equality. But these are our children, the most vulnerable among us. And if he can't even stand up to protect them from bullying and discrimination, that's another clear demonstration that it's time for a change.
