MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The state of Vermont has restored funding for a group that fights discrimination against gay people to run an anti-harassment program in the schools.
Funding for the Outright Vermont program was cut in 2000, amid the heated debate over civil unions in which the state was engaged at the time.
The group had been operating its school program with private grant funding, but now Outright Vermont says state funding has been restored.
Within the past year, Outright Vermont has made 152 presentations in Vermont schools, reaching more than 4,000 students and educators.
