Jimbeau Hinson signed No special legislative session for bathroom discrimination! 2016-05-18 10:29:16 -0500With all the problems we have in the State of Tennessee, why are you making more when there is not one concerning transpeople and bathrooms. They’ve been using the toilet of their choice forever. Stop this ridiculous waste of tax payer money and your time that should better be spent on worthwhile matters. Stop trying to bibletize the state. There is a separation of church and state for good reason. Keep it that way.

Dear Speaker Ramsey and Speaker Harwell:
We oppose a special legislative session to consider an anti-transgender bathroom discrimination law. It is never justified to spend the state's time and money to advance discrimination. Thank you for considering our views.
Jimbeau Hinson signed No Discrimination in Federal Contracts! 2016-05-08 09:56:39 -0500With liberty and justice for all… finally!
In late April the U.S. House Armed Services Committee voted to undo President Obama's non-discrimination executive orders for federal contracts via the Russell amendment. This amendment is part of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Removal of the President's executive orders on non-discrimination would be a disaster for LGBT people in states like Tennessee that lack employment protections covering sexual orientation and gender identity.
Please, sign this petition to Tennessee's two U.S. Senators and nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives and we will make sure copies are sent to their offices.554 signatures
Dear Senators Alexander and Corker and Representatives Roe, Duncan, Fleischmann, Desjarlais, Cooper, Black, Blackburn, Fincher, and Cohen:
We oppose the Russell amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act and similar efforts to reverse President Obama's executive orders on employment non-discrimination for federal contractors. Protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is important to Tennesseans. Thank you for considering our views.
Jimbeau Hinson endorsed 2016-04-26 11:50:40 -0500God made us all. Stop using religion to discriminate. God is watching.
On April 18, 2016 about 30 pastors shamefully stood in Legislative Plaza and spoke in favor of the anti-transgender student bathroom bill. And religion was used to advance the counseling discrimination bill. Many more clergy across Tennessee publicly opposed both bills.
Whether you're religious or not, aren't you tired of religion being used to support discrimination in our laws? If so, endorse this statement:
We oppose the use of religion to justify discrimination in Tennessee law. To use religion to divide us in our public life violates the spirit of the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions, does harm to the people of Tennessee, and brings scandal to religion.Endorse

Jimbeau Hinson signed Governor Haslam, Fight for trans students and against SB2387/HB2414 2016-04-01 11:19:36 -0500Do the right thing by all the people you represent. Forcing people to use one bathroom over another is hurtful in and of itself but it’s also dangerous for trans people to be forced to walk into a men’s restroom dressed in the female attire they fell is who they really are inside. Such a simple thing. Such a crazy thing for politicians to use as a tool to ram their so called religious beliefs down the rest of our throats. Stop supporting the insanity.
Please, join us in encouraging Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to fight against this attack on transgender students.985 signatures
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.
