State of Emergency: 3 discriminatory bills up a vote

So far, three anti-LGBTQ bills are up for a vote the week of March 3 in the Tennessee General Assembly. 

The first is a bill that allows private adoption agencies to discriminate against parents based on the religious views of the agency.  That hits LGBTQ parents and parents of different religions or no religion at all.  Public policy ought to be based on the needs of the child and whether the parents can provide a loving home.  Use this form to contact the subcommittee voting on the bill and urge them to vote NO

The Business License to Discriminate bill is also up in the House Commerce Committee on Tuesday. Here's the new email campaign to oppose that bill.

On Wednesday the anti-transgender locker room bill is up for a vote.  Take action against that bill at this link.
