Add your name and urge Governor Haslam to veto SB1085/HB1111, the Sneaky LGBT Erasure Bill.  After you sign the petition, share it with your friends.  We will deliver a hard copy of the signatures to the Governor's Office.  Your voice can help determine whether he uses the VETO pen or the BECOMES LAW pen!

Dear Governor Haslam,

We ask you to veto SB1085/HB1111.  This bill, as the Attorney General has noted, is broadly written.  Its vagueness could result in conflicts with existing laws about judicial interpretation.  These conflicts are likely to cause discrimination against LGBTQ people, particularly with respect to marriage, adoption, and legal documents.  This bill risks subjecting Tennessee to the same scrutiny that North Carolina has received.  We cannot afford hundreds of millions of dollars in economic boycotts and sanctions.  Please, veto this bill so we can avoid judicial chaos and costly discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.

    This will ruin my future plans for having children and having a family. No ones future should be pushed aside. I fought for this country, I fought for our freedom. “Our” as in yours and mine and everyone’s, this will not be allowing me freedom to have a family like I plan on. Everyone is equal, every sin is equal. So why keep anyone from what or who they love. Let us live a life that we’ve worked so hard for.
