CBLDF Joins Letter Asking VA Governor to Again Veto ‘Beloved Bill’

But the two groups pushing the legislation, the Florida Citizens’ Alliance and Better Collier County Public Schools, have in the past raised objections to the teaching of climate change and evolution, as well as books with LGBTQ themes. Advocacy groups including the National Center for Science Education and Florida Citizens for Science warn that the true objective of the bills is “inserting creationism and climate change doubts into the classroom.”
