New Mexico Anti-Bullying Law Heads to Gov. Martinez

Earlier this week, the New Mexico state legislature passed SB78, legislation that would create bullying prevention policies and implement anti-bullying programs in New Mexico public schools by the start of the 2012 school year. The bill now heads to Governor Susana Martinez’s desk, where she will have the opportunity to do the right thing. The legislation, passed in both chambers, includes language that addresses bullying in regards to real or perceived sexual orientation. In the wake of the many teen suicides, these protections are needed now. If you’re a New Mexico resident, click here to send a letter to Gov. Martinez urging her to sign the anti-bullying law.
