Protect all young Australians, including lesbian, gay bi, and trans people. Don't pass any form of the budget that contains funding for religious groups to take the place of qualified mental health professionals or social workers in schools.

Update - 19 June: Big news - Australia's High Court just said the federal government can no longer fund chaplains in schools!

This is a major win for LGBT students all over the country, but Tony Abbott might try continuing the program at a state level. The fight's not over, sign and share to spread the word.

UPDATE – 3 June: We did it! On Monday, All Out members took the explosive outrage about the Government's Budget straight to Parliament – asking them not to fund groups that include anti-gay chaplains in Australian schools. Now anti-gay groups are fighting back. Will you sign now?

Published 29 May: The Australian government just released the Federal Budget with $245 million to send chaplains from anti-gay religious groups, such as ACCESS Ministries and Your Dream Incorporated, to schools where lesbian, gay, bi and trans students are already bullied and harassed.

There's still a chance to stop it. If we expose this secret religious agenda right now, while the budget is being debated.

Help raise the alarm and stop taxes from being spent to bully vulnerable teens. We only have days – Sign now!
