Utah State Capitol

When extreme religious conservatives in Utah tried to pass a bill banning sex education in public schools, preventing young people from getting critical information about STDs, pregnancy, and contraception, Paul Krueger, a school bus driver and retired firefighter, started a MoveOn Petition.

Krueger said, “I’ve never done anything like this, and it’s kind of amazing how fast this took off.”
