NEA Takes Strong Stand on Equality

July 6, 2009
The National Education Association (NEA), is the nation's largest professional employee organization with over 3.2 million members. At their national conference this weekend, they adopted a strongly worded resolution on sexual equality. Resolutions B-13 (Racism, Sexism, Sexual Orientation, and Gender Identification Discrimination) and I-13 (Civil Rights) set forth NEA's opposition to the discriminatory treatment of same-sex couples and its belief that such couples should have the same legal rights and benefits as similarly-situated heterosexual couples.
