Call 1-202-816-6461 or use the form on this page to call Indiana’s Chair of the House Committee on Education and express your opposition to SB 12.

SB 12  uses intentionally ambiguous language to advocate for censorship of "material harmful to minors" in elementary schools, secondary schools, and non-college/university libraries. The goal of this bill is to ban materials specifically relating to sex education, LGBT+ content, and content relating to issues that affect BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) folks.

The ambiguity in this bill would leave schools, educators, and librarians not only vulnerable to lawsuits from any parties who disagree with materials, but also being charged with felonies for allowing these materials to be available.

This bill is a threat to students and educators alike. Ask the Chair of the House Committee on Education not to hear SB 12 in committee.

What to Say (Call Script)

Hi, my name is __________, and I live in ___________.

I'm calling to ask Representative Behning not to let SB 12 be heard in the House Committee on Education. The majority of Hoosiers, including myself, do not support this bill. [add your own story, if you like].

This bill advocates for harmful censorship that can be used to harm students and educators alike. Students should have access to accurate, truthful, information, and educators should not be at risk of prosecution for making age-appropriate materials available to students.  School is supposed to be a place to learn and ask difficult questions. Please do not let SB 12 be heard in committee.  

Enter your phone number, address and zip code to be connected to Rep. Robert Behning. You’ll hear a message from us and then we’ll connect you.

Tell the staff member who answers that you would like to tell Rep. Robert Behning to not to let SB 12 be heard in the House Committee on Education.


+Yes, please send me email updates from Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

*By providing my cell phone number I agree to receive calls and texts to that number from Planned Parenthood organizations that may be automatically dialed or prerecorded with information on Planned Parenthood issues and ways to get involved.
