Shayne Ray signed Governor Haslam, Keep listening and oppose HB2414 via Chris Purcell 2016-04-15 01:54:18 -0500Governor, please oppose HB2414. I am a Nurse and it is morally unethical to refuse service to someone just because I don’t believe the things they do. What if I refused a life saving procedure to a heterosexual just because I didn’t agree with their lifestyle? We need to start bringing people together and embracing differences instead of passing laws that push us farther from each other. We need to teach our children that Love is the strongest force in the Universe.

Governor Haslam, please continue to oppose HB2414 and listen to the voices of transgender students and the business community speaking out against the bill. Thank you for considering our views.
Shayne Ray signed VETO Hate Bill 1840, the Counseling Discrimination bill 2016-04-06 18:49:52 -0500Signing this bill would be an embarrassment to our Beautiful State. Look at the backlash NC has received. Do we really want businesses and the entertainment industry to pull out of here on top of perpetuating the wrong message. As a Nurse we are obligated to care for someone no matter the lifestyle/ belief system we have in our personal life. That shouldn’t matter when trying to help people. Keep Tennessee Great by being an all inclusive, welcoming state. Thank-you for listening. Yours truly, Shayne Ray, LPN
Please, add your voice and urge Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to veto this discriminatory bill.4,241 signatures
Dear Governor Haslam,
We urge you to veto HB1840, which allows counselors to turn away clients based on the counselor's biases and values. This bill puts the focus on the desires of counselors rather than on the needs of clients, damaging the counseling profession and putting clients at risk.
An anti-bullying amendment was stripped from the bill in the House Health Committee leaving youth vulnerable in areas where mental health services are not widely available.
Thank you for considering our views.
