NJ Gov Signs Nation's Toughest Anti-Bullying Law

WASHINGTON – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed a landmark Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights into law.  The legislation, passed almost unanimously by both houses of the state legislature in November, is the toughest state anti-bullying law in the country.  The new law mandates specific anti-bullying procedures for schools across the state and also covers public universities.  After the signing, HRC President Joe Solmonese made the following statement:

“This past year we have seen lives ruined and families destroyed by anti-LGBT bullying in all corners of the country.  We know when our elected leaders speak, kids struggling with their identity and self-worth listen.  Today Governor Christie and lawmakers in both houses of New Jersey’s legislature spoke loud and clear in sending a message to all children that they are valued, and to school administrators, educators and support professionals that they must be responsible and effective in addressing anti-LGBT bullying and harassment.  We applaud the Governor and legislative leaders who stood up for all children.  We also commend Garden State Equality for its tireless work over the years to make this law a reality.”

 

 The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
