Stop BSA recruiting in our Public Schools

In our ongoing efforts to prevent discrimination, the ADSN has created a letter of appeal to schools and school districts reminding them that the Boy Scouts of America is a private organization which should not be receiving taxpayer benefits such as recruiting in our tax-supported public schools. Please read the letter and join us in taking action.  For those schools which are willing to pledge a non-discrimination policy, there is a frameable certificate which may be downloaded and given to them.
