Call Senators John Crane and Jeff Raatz Now!

Call 1-304-507-3171or use the form on this page

Call Senators John Crane and Jeff Raatz to express your opposition of HB 1608. This bill will ban discussions regarding sexual orientation or gender identities in grades K-3. As children learn to identify themselves in life, their formative years help to build the foundations for who they may become. This bill stops that early on and makes it difficult for them to live healthy and safe lives. This bill harms students and takes away school as a safe space for them as it would force educators to “out” their students. We must stop this bill before it moves out of the Education and Career Development Committee and onto the House floor. 

We must ACT NOW to stand against hate in our state and make our voices heard. 

Call your Senator Crane right now and tell him to vote NO on this dangerous bill!

What to Say (Call Script)

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

I'm calling to ask Sentator Crane to not let HB 1608 be heard in the Education and Career Development committee. 

The majority of Hoosiers, including myself, do not support this bill. [add your own story, if you like]. This bill bans age appropriate conversations from happening and takes away a safe space from many students. School is supposed to be a place to learn and ask difficult questions. Please do not let HB 1608 be heard in committee.  

Enter your phone number, address and zip code to be connected to Senator Crane or Senator Raatz. You’ll hear a message from us and then we’ll connect you.

Tell the staff member who answers that you would like Senator Crane and Senator Raatz to vote not hear and vote NO on HB 1608 and if you have a personal story please share that too.


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