Tennessee Open For Business is a free program for Tennessee small businesses that pledge not to discriminate against their employees or customers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. That means that member businesses do not discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender individuals or couples or do harm to the LGBTQ community. Members will get a listing on our website, a post on Facebook, and a window cling suitable for display in their storefront. The program is made possible through generous support of the Brooks Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
The Tennessee Equality Project reserves the right to refuse membership in this program to any applicant and to revoke the membership of any business.

Shannon Stoner endorsed 2016-04-21 09:08:13 -0500It’s a sad day when clergy misuse the heart of Jesus Christ to descriminate against their fellow human. “He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone…” Reference to search your own heart before judging someone else. Unfortunately, many in this general assembly used ego & pride to legislate basic human rights. That backed by the misuse of God’s Word is a dangerous combination. My higher power states for us to love God & love his people. Unfortunately clergy & the like, turned a sacred loving, spiritual written word into a weapon of descrimination. That’s not what God intended. I’m very sad that the majority of this legislative body became so absorbed in its power hungry ego when making choices & wanting to be seen & right, instead of humbling their hearts to even consider the voice of reason. All voices deserve to be heard. Not just a select few radicals who insist on bullying & being right. Not God’s way, no way!
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
