Clark County Schools Stop Filtering Gay, Alternative Religion Websites

LAS VEGAS, NV – Students in the Clark County School District (CCSD) are now able to access websites with positive information about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals on their schools’ computers. The ACLU of Nevada advocated for CCSD officials to stop the censorship of positive, non-pornographic LGBT web content, which had previously been blocked to students.

“Although the First Amendment does not require the school district to provide students with Internet access, once a school district does so, it may not selectively censor access to websites based on particular viewpoints,” said Staci Pratt, Legal Director for the ACLU of Nevada.
