Part 23 (FINAL in the series): Right-wing myths and the dismantling of the separation between church and state.

Is it “indoctrination” when schools teach kids about LGBTQ issues? How do we respond when parents and schools seek to censor what’s discussed in schools in the name of “protecting” children?

In this edition, we explore the myths pushed by right-wing politicians — the people who are actually abusing children through their anti-LGBTQ policies. We also talk about what to do when the courts undermine equality and the separation of church and state.

Joining us to delve into this issue is Jennifer C. Pizer. Jenny is the Senior Counsel and Director of Law and Policy for Lambda Legal, the country’s oldest and largest legal organization seeking full recognition of the civil rights of LGBT people and everyone living with HIV.
