Some La Crosse families don’t want city leaders telling them how their kids should be raised.
Opponents of a recently-passed ban on conversion therapy in La Crosse have scheduled a mid-afternoon rally at City Hall, starting at 2:30, calling on Mayor Mitch Reynolds to veto the ban before it becomes law at 5 p.m.
The ordinance was passed by a narrow 6-4 vote by the city council last week.
Rally organizers say the measure would interfere with freedom of speech and religion, in preventing parents from getting therapy for children who identify as LGBTQ.
They describe the ban as government overreach, which could lead to a court challenge.
