Sherri Gray endorsed via Kathy Halbrooks 2017-06-11 21:12:49 -0500I am a decades-long LGBT ally…I march, participate in rallies, volunteer for activities, attend PFLAG and TVALS meetings, present workshops, and write LGBTQ-related songs. I will continue to work for equality and inclusion until the day I due.
Sign your name and let us know your email address to pledge your ongoing commitment to the work for full equality in Tennessee after the marches and celebrations are over. That will allow us to stay in touch with you about key training events around the state.
I pledge to work for equality and justice for LGBTQ people in Tennessee after the marches and rallies. I will keep their spirit with me and find ways to resist discrimination and build power for the equality movement. Please, contact me on June 26 for a special announcement about opening a new front in the fight for good public policy for LGBTQ people in Tennessee.
I want to join my efforts with equality advocates statewide to resist the Legislature's attacks.Endorse
Sherri Gray endorsed 2016-04-26 08:05:08 -0500What about that “separation of church and state” thing? We’re ALL Americans and Tennesseans…even though we may be Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Native American, Wiccan…well, you get the idea, I’m sure. Religion—ANY religion—has NO place in Politics! Period.
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

Take a minute to contact Governor Bill Haslam by phone message or on Twitter and then let us know you did it using this form. Let's get to 500 or more!
I called or Tweeted Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and urged him to veto HB1840, the counseling discrimination bill. I'm asking you to do the same this week.Endorse
