The Counseling Discrimination bill by Sen. Hensley and Rep. DeBerry is up in House Education subcommittee next Wednesday at Noon. SB297/HB566 would allow counseling, psychology, and social work students at Tennessee public universities to opt out of serving clients based on a student's sincerely held religious beliefs.
This bill is clearly targeting the LGBT community.
Here's how you can fight back.
*Pack the subcommittee meeting and wear purple to show your opposition at Wednesday at Noon. RSVP for the event here.
*Call every member of the subcommittee. The image in this post gives you their numbers and a short script. Leaving a message in the evening work just fine.
*Consider making a small, monthly contribution so we can sustain our lobbying efforts at this link.
*Write a letter to the editor of your local paper about the bill. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get talking points, etc.
*You can also sign the petition against the bill at this link. It will generate an email to all the members of the subcommittee who will vote on the bill.
Thanks for all your support in fighting this discriminatory legislation!
