'The only way I will rest in peace is if one day transgender people aren’t treated the way I was…My death needs to mean something'
Leelah’s words from her suicide note posted to Tumblr.
Our last action of 2014 was to ask you to help honor her memory and her wish, by signing a petition that proposes Leelah’s Law - legislation banning conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ people in the US.
100 000 signatures were needed for the petition to be addressed by President Obama.
That goal has now been reached and we would like to thank all of our members and supporters who signed Leelah’s Law petition and contributed to making Leelah’s wish come true.
You can still sign the petition here
