Statement of the California Democratic Party LGBT Caucus Co-Chairs Pat Washington and Clark Williams on Governor Brown Signing SB 48 into Law

The LGBT Caucus of the California Democratic Party (CDP) applauds Governor Jerry Brown for signing SB 48 into law today. Officially known as the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful) Education Act, SB 48, authored by Senator Mark Leno, will ensure that historic and contemporary contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, and disabled individuals will be fairly and accurately depicted in instructional materials taught in California schools.

We are proud that California once again leads the country with this legislation, the first in the nation. Thanks to Governor Brown and Senator Leno, balanced information about the accomplishments and contributions of LGBT individuals will be included in our state's instructional materials and the community's search for equality and justice will be woven into the fabric of our state's history.
