    TEP Giving Tuesday 2019

    $2,310.00 raised
    GOAL: $2,000.00

    Giving Tuesday, an annual international day of giving, is December 3. Please, include Tennessee Equality Project in your giving plans.  When you support TEP, you make it possible for us to fight back against adoption discrimination bills, anti-transgender student bathroom bills, and attacks on marriage equality.  You give us the capacity to organize throughout Tennessee, and that allows us to defend the LGBTQ community.  We are grateful for your support.

    If you prefer to make a tax-deductible contribution to the TEP Foundation, you can do so at this link.

    His words, as a public servant need to have consequences

    Censure Commissioner Hurst, make Sevier County policies inclusive

    The racist and homophobic comments of Sevier County Commissioner Warren Hurst have shocked people across the country.  Please, add your name to protest his divisive words and call for policy change in Sevier County, Tennessee.  We will deliver your signatures to the Sevier County Government in November at the next county commission meeting.

    1,740 signatures

    To the Honorable Larry Waters, Mayor of Sevier County, and to the honorable members of the Sevier County Commission:

    Calls have gone out across the country for Commissioner Warren Hurst to resign over his racist and homophobic comments. While that decision is in his hands, we call on you to censure him by resolution of the Sevier County Commission and to update the employment non-discrimination policy of Sevier County Government to protect county employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  We urge you to make this policy change by executive order immediately, to be followed by a confirming ordinance or resolution of the County Commission.
