U.S. District Judge William Jung, a Trump appointee, struck down a ban on widely discredited "reparative" or "conversion" therapy for minors in Tampa, Florida. He ruled the city lacks jurisdiction to enact the ordinance.
Tonight we discuss this ruling, the controversial practice and its hundreds of thousands of victims, with Curtis Galloway, the president and founder of the Conversion Therapy Dropout Network.
As a result of the isolating nature of "conversion" therapy, many survivors do not seek help due to fear of exposure, family pressure, and PTSD around mental health providers. Many cannot share their experiences without extreme emotional responses. The Conversion Therapy Dropout Network strives to bridge that gap between survivors and provide a support network through shared experience.
