TROOP 729, New York City Rejects BSA Discriminations by Sending the BSA National an Anti-Discrimination
Boy Scout Troop 729 of New York City sent a letter to the National Office of the Boy Scouts of America containing
a resolution passed by the Chartering Organization for the troop which states that Troop 729 will not discriminate
against any boy who wishes to join the troop on the basis of sexual orientation, nor against any adult who wishes
to support the troop as an adult leader on such basis.
Scouts and Scouters from the Troop were interviewed on camera recently regarding this stance by Newshour with Jim
Lehrer which will be broadcast on PBS.
