First, the high school canceled its prom, all so Constance McMillen couldn't go. That decision was challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union, and a federal judge ruled that the school had violated Constance's First Amendment Rights. The school agreed to let Constance and her partner go to a private prom.
But then, in a twist of deceit, the school organized parents to put on a different prom which Constance wasn't invited to. Constance ended up attending a private prom that was nothing more than a decoy.
It's hard to believe that adults would engage in such behavior all to deny a teenager the right to attend her prom. In response the ACLU is asking concerned citizens to sign a petition asking Congress to support a Student Nondiscrimination Act.
