Seattle Public Schools middle school teacher has students write cards to Moms for Liberty accusing them of “bullying LGBTQ youth and families”


On November 25, 2023, Moms for Liberty posted on X that the organization received a package from a middle school teacher and GSA coordinator at Seattle Public Schools. This teacher had middle school students create cards promoting LGBTQ causes specifically for Moms for Liberty. The teacher stated in a letter included in the package: “Please read the enclosed cards from concerned middle school students in Seattle, Washington.”

Several of the cards had the exact same message that appeared to be organized by an adult: “Dear Moms for Liberty, Stop bullying and excluding LGBTQ youth and families.” Multiple cards from students showed a broken heart with the text: “My heart when people are homophobic.” Multiple cards also had the text: “Gay is slay.” One specific card mentioned: “The oppressed are always the protagonists.”
