Post California AB 9 "Seth's Law" Passes Education Committee - April 14th 2011, 09:11 PM

Today, the new Anti-Bullying Bill AB 9, also known as "Seth's Law" was passed in the California Assembly Education Committee. The Bill will address school bullying head on and provide California public schools with the resources and tools needed to prevent and stop bullying, as well as creating new updated anti-harrasment policies and programs.

The Bill is named "Seth's Law" in honor of Seth Walsh, a 13 year old from Tehachapi, California who took his own life in September of 2010 because of anti-gay bullying and harrasment.

While the Bill mainly focuses on Anti-LGBTQ Bullying, the Bill encompasses to protect all students based on race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, or disability.

This is awesome! It's good to know that some action is being taken towards ending bullying against LGBTQ citizens, and other minorities and such as well. I just wish 'Seth's Bill' would pass in all the states, however, in reality I know this will not happen. But, I'm glad that California and your homestate Sythan, have taken action to stop this sort of bullying happening in their school systems. I hope appropriate action are given to those who do not support or follow the bill.
