Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111

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.

    You know this is a terrible bill intended to punish LGBTQ people in TN. Do the right thing and veto it, Governor.

    Dear Governor Haslam, There is no reason to deny legally married couples from having both their names on their soon to be born children’s birth certificates. As a concerned citizen about equal rights for all Tennesseans, I urge you to veto this bill.

    Please remember we as humans are all equal. Everyone deserves rights and to be protected. The United States is the land of the free. And part of that freedom should be being protected and having the same rights as all humans.

    Please think about your family and friends and think if you would take this from them.
