I’m just sending a reminder about the province-wide letter campaign regarding the sexually graphic material that was provided to K-12 children on an Alberta government funded and recommended website.
I am hoping to reach a goal of 1000 individual letters before the deadline in a couple weeks and would appreciate your help to reach that goal.
Here are two ways you can help:
1. Write a letter, maximum of one page – watch my video and/or read the petition for ideas of what you can write: https://informedalbertans.wordpress.com/sexually-graphic-material-to-kids-in-alberta-schools-what-you-can-do/
The letters can be short, simple and to the point. If you have already sent a letter, THANK YOU!
2. Send a reminder to others in your networks to remind them to also send in their letters ASAP. Feel free to forward this message.
Tip: Maximize letters and save postage by enclosing letters from each adult in your household within the same envelope.
The deadline is quickly approaching and time is of the essence. I would appreciate your help in getting as many letters as possible. Quantity of letters will be most important.
Thank you so much for investing time today to speak out for the safety of children in K-12 schools!
Leela Sharon Aheer stood up in legislature April 3rd during question period, and asked Education Minister David Eggen what he planned to do to monitor the the links and resources that were being given on the Alberta GSA Network website, and if he would apologize. Unsurprisingly Eggen would not answer the question, and instead tried to insinuate that parents raising these concerns were somehow putting the children at risk of ‘outing.’
Leela Sharon Aheer – “Over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen instances where content linked to the Alberta Education website is clearly inappropriate for students, containing graphic and sexual content. Providing supports to all students is imperative, but giving students access to explicit content is wrong. The minister knows it, and – believe me – parents know it.
Yesterday I asked the minister to tell parents whose fault this is, why no one is monitoring this, and who is going to be held accountable.”
