To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All available records of complaints and violations regarding “Conversion Therapy,” “Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE)," “Ex-Gay Therapy,” “Reparative Therapy,” and/or “Same-Sex Attraction (SSA) Therapy" submitted between January 1, 2008 and the date this request is received. Please ensure the records include the location of the complaint/violation (address or long./lat. coordinates), whether it was a complaint or violation, the status of the request, the amount of fines resulting from the violation and any and all other available information listed in the dataset or related datasets.

If possible, please provide the data in a digital file (i.e. Excel spreadsheet .xls or .csv file)

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
