Steven Cozza, Eagle Scout National Rally Letter To The Redwood Empire Council

October 9, 2002

Redwood Empire Council
2240 Professional Dr.
Santa Rosa, CA

Dear Executive Director,

Scouting for All, Petaluma High School Gay Straight Alliance and other supporters of human rights and justice for all are holding our rally today to recognize gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youth. Over the years the Redwood Empire Council has supported the Boy Scouts of America's national office policy of discrimination towards gay and non-theist youth and adults.

We are here today to ask the Redwood Empire Council to oppose the BSA national policy by writing an anti-discrimination statement. GSAs, Gay Straight Alliances throughout the country are trying to help make our schools safe for all youth. Right now the Boy Scouts of America is not a safe place for gay youth. An anti-discrimination statement from the Redwood Empire Council would help make scouting in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties safe for scouts who now have to hide that they are gay out of fear of being rejected and thrown out.

By writing an anti-discrimination statement, all youth will feel protected and that they belong. We ask the Redwood Empire Council to find the courage to take such action if they truly care about all of our youth. If you fail to take such action you have failed your own Scout Oath and Scout Law as well as the youth of Sonoma and Mendocino Counties.


Scott Cozza, Pres. Scouting for All

Steven Cozza, Eagle Scout, Petaluma HS GSA Co-Pres.

Katie O'Brien, Petaluma HS GSA Co-Pres.




Scouting For All is not an alternative scouting program.
We are an education and advocacy organization reaching out to gay and nontheist youth and adults in our effort to get the Boy Scouts of America to rescind its exlusionary policy.
