LGBTQ Public Policy: Hamblen County anti-marriage equality resolution

Unfortunately the Hamblen County Commission has decided to consider an anti-marriage equality resolution, which you can read at this link, at their December 21 meeting at 5:00 p.m. at the Courthouse in Morristown.  Such resolutions were popular in late 2015 and early 2016.

We are asking you to show up in RED at the county commission meeting to express your opposition.  RSVP and learn more at the link. If you don't live in Hamblen County or can't attend the meeting, please ask friends to show up. 

This is a resolution and not an ordinance.  It expresses the opinion of the county commission.  It would not stop marriage equality.  But there is no place in local government for attacking fellow citizens and we should all oppose this resolution.  The resolution would urge the Legislature to try to do what it can to stop marriage equality.

If you want to contact the county commissioners and express your opposition to the resolution, you can find them and their contact information at this link.

To discuss the response to the resolution, you may reach us at [email protected] .
