Contact Governor Lee as dangerous anti-trans bills head to his desk

Three dangerous anti-trans bills are on Governor's Lee's desk. Contact him at 615-741-2001 and make your voices heard.

HB1233 is an anti-transgender student bathroom bill that offers trans students separate and unequal accommodations in our public schools. Tennessee could be the only state this year to enact a bathroom bill if the Governor signs it. 

HB1182 is the anti-transgender bathroom sign mandate bill that applies to businesses and organizations that have a trans-inclusive policy for multi-person restrooms. The bill requires them to put up a demeaning sign about biological sex. It could lead to increased policing of trans people in restrooms and aggression towards trans-inclusive businesses. 

SB126 is a bill that puts into the Tennessee Code standards for gender-affirming care for trans youth. Why is that a bad idea? It is discriminatory because we don’t normally put standards of care into the law and if the standard of care changes based on research, we shouldn’t have to amend the law. It could also invite more restrictive amendments in future legislative sessions.

Contact Governor Lee today at 615-741-2001 and let him know your views on anti-transgender legislation.

    Veto these bills. They represent the worst of the worst views of some bigoted, small-minded Tennesseans. We are better than that.

    In regards to human rights, this is an incredibly harmful bill that would lead to further miscarriages of justice against the trans community. Trans people everywhere deserve the right to life, liberty, AND the pursuit of happiness. Veto these bills!
