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.

    Governor…remember when I personally asked you to visualize MY face when legislation such as this came across your desk? Remember when I told you that it does NOT just impact a faceless minority….that it has an impact on me…someone who you have called friend….someone who was born in and loves the state of TN, someone you know to be patriotic, involved in my community and a Believer in Christ? It impacts your neighbors, friends, physicians, teachers, clergy. Remember….when I asked you to consider ALL of the citizens of TN in your decision making? I hope you remember. Because the constant attack on Tennesseans who may be of a different orientation than yourself or some of the other representatives, is wrong. Completely wrong. We are Americans. We deserve the very same rights and treatment as any other American. We are not ‘less than’ in any way. Please….do the right thing and veto this bill, and any subsequent bills like it.
