  • Urge Gov. Haslam to protect LGBTQ state government employees

    Outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich recently signed an executive order barring discrimination against state government employees on the basis of gender identity.  Discrimination based on sexual orientation was already banned. 

    Outgoing Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam could do the same for our state government employees.  Sign the petition and urge him to protect LGBTQ state government employees by executive order.  If we get 1000+ signatures, we will deliver them to the Governor's office.

    Dear Governor Haslam,

    We urge you to sign an executive order protecting Tennessee state government employees from job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, the same protections that Ohio state government employees enjoy thanks to the recent executive order signed by outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich.

    Employees of our public colleges and universities already enjoy these projections as do the public employees in Metro Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Memphis, and Knox County.  Everyone deserves the opportunity to work without the fear of discrimination. 

    Thank you for considering our views.

    *Fighting back against numerous anti-LGBTQ bills in the TN General Assembly.

    *Helping local advocates and organizations stop the elimination of LGBTQ protections in Knox County Schools and stop an effort to ban drag performance in Portland, TN.

    *Registering voters, growing programs like Boro Pride, and bringing a vital health care conference to East TN.

    *Beinga voice for you in the media because our state's residents need to know that someone is speaking out for the values of equality and inclusion in the public square.

    WE can resist discrimination AND build equality with your monthly support.  If you prefer to make a one-time donation, you can do so at this link. Thank you!
