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?

    The bathroom bills do not protect citizens. The irony of those and identical bills nationwide are transgender persons are almost always the ones assaulted, raped, harassed, and killed not non-transgender people. Existing state and federal laws prosecute and deliver punishments to people that rape, assault, harass, and murder someone. The panic over transgender people using bathrooms that don’t match their sex assigned at birth is reminiscent of rhetoric used to continue segregation based on race during the Jim Crow era.
