Dear Chairwoman Ramirez, Commissioner Brill, Commissioner McSweeny, Commissioner Ohlhausen, and


Commissioner Wright:


We write in support of the enclosed letter from Members of Congress. Although our organizations are diverse with respect to mission, focus and approach, we all share a similar commitment to improving the lives of LGBT individuals and support the request by Members of Congress to the FTC seeking a rule to ban the practice of ‘conversion therapy.’
