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?

    This bill will do nothing but cause harm to the state’s inhabitants, and there is no excuse or forgiveness for such harm.

    If you claim to care for your state and the rights of its people then you will not consider letting this bill pass for even one moment.

    Strike this bill, and all the ignorance and hate it stands for, down!

    Please protect your transgender constituents. They are citizens just the same as the rest of us. I’m proud to count myself among the many trans allies in this state. I implore you, governor, do not allow this bill to pass into law.

    Governor Haslam,


    Thank you for standing with our transgender children who are already marginalized in society and victims of bullying, especially in our public schools. I appreciate your leadership in lobbying against SB2387/HB2414. Please help our children who need you now more than ever to stand by their sides.

    This state needs to stop being synonymous with hate mongers and idiots. Treat all of Tennessee’s citizens the way you would treat your own family (I would hope): with kindness and respect.
