Dear Governor Haslam,

We call on you to do everything in your power to lobby against passage of SB2387/HB2414, the anti-transgender student bathroom bill.  We also ask that you VETO the bill if it reaches your desk. 

The bill endangers vulnerable students and it risks significant U.S. Department of Education funds to Tennessee.  If this bill became law, the enforcement would be a nightmare for school districts across the state. 

Show the world that Tennessee is a welcoming state.  Thank you for considering our views.

Will you sign?

    Please, veto this very pointless bill. Where, exactly, does everyone think trans people have been going to the bathroom, since the beginning of time? They’ve been using the one that fits their gender presentation, of course. I think, otherwise, we might have noticed. This bill endangers young men transitioning to female more than anyone. Can you imagine an apparent woman walking into a men’s bathroom in a rough area? That is not safe. If this bill passes the state will be liable for violence perpetrated against trans people forced to use the men’s bathroom. This is just my humble opinion, but I believe it to be correct.

    With liberty and justice for ALL !!! Separation of church and state is essential. If not, than churches that are too politically involved need to start paying taxes.
