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?

    Public funds includes taxes from all, not just one group or sect. Therefore, dispensation therefrom cannot be by sect or group, but to all.

    Why is Tennessee always behind in history or first to spread ignorance? It’s embarrassing living here because of stupid, ineffectual bills like this. Our education system is shot, infrastructure crumbling, lots of people on government assistance and this is what we care about? Veto this bill Haslam. Don’t go down in history for letting this bill pass.

    Our company is a service dog provider company. We. have several clients located in Tn. who already own our dogs and contacts pending for others We have alread informed our clients that if the anti- gay legislation continues to move forward, that we will no longer be able to service the accounts of our clients living in Tn. , as to do so, would cause our employees to be in un- safe working conditions in a state that has sanctioned discrimination against its citizens. Not being able to provide help to clients residing in your state that already have our dogs would certainly cause a hardship to those clients, and new clients will have to leave their home state, in order to receive their dog and the necessary training that comes with it. I urge you to veto any bills that come across your desk that will sanction discrimination of any kind, in the guise of religious freedom.
