tommilynn travis endorsed 2016-04-26 10:44:02 -0500I was born in Memphis, Tennessee and I miss my family, but as a transgender woman I do not feel safe anywhere in the southeast so I’ve made my home in California . While I would like to visit friends and family I do not feel that risking my life to visit them is a good idea. I pray that change will come, but if history proves correct the change won’t happen until the current generation has long passed on.
On April 18, 2016 about 30 pastors shamefully stood in Legislative Plaza and spoke in favor of the anti-transgender student bathroom bill. And religion was used to advance the counseling discrimination bill. Many more clergy across Tennessee publicly opposed both bills.
Whether you're religious or not, aren't you tired of religion being used to support discrimination in our laws? If so, endorse this statement:
We oppose the use of religion to justify discrimination in Tennessee law. To use religion to divide us in our public life violates the spirit of the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions, does harm to the people of Tennessee, and brings scandal to religion.Endorse
