Kenny Ensley signed No Discrimination in Federal Contracts! 2016-05-09 12:03:54 -0500No discrimination……..PERIOD! This is 2016. It is time for all forms of discrimination and bigotry to cease.
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.
Kenny Ensley signed Governor Haslam, Keep listening and oppose HB2414 2016-04-15 08:53:04 -0500It is shameful that we are even having this discussion! It is 2016 ….have we not learned anything from the past in regards to discrimination? It is wrong in ALL situations and only serves to hurt the innocent and often this in turn breeds anger and violence. It is an UGLY commentary on the good people of Tennessee who see this legislation as what it really is….an attack on a minority group. Just as was the case years ago with the American Indian, Asian & European Immigrants, Black Americans, Women, Homosexuals and now the minority in the crosshairs are the Transgender……

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.
