One Colorado: How did your legislators vote on the conversion therapy ban for minors?

By Sarah Clark, Organizing Manager, One Colorado

We did it! After five years, the bill to ban conversion therapy for minors in Colorado is headed to Governor Polis's desk for his signature!

Conversion therapy is based on the false claim that being LGBTQ is a mental illness that needs to be cured ? a view that has been rejected as scientifically invalid by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and every major medical and mental health group for decades.

Your elected officials recently cast their vote in favor of banning this harmful practice or voted to allow the practice to continue.

We want to show your elected officials that LGBTQ Coloradans and their families care about their votes and are watching to ensure that our elected officials are representing us. Send them a quick email now.
