ACT NOW while there is still a chance for a veto of discriminatory bills

Yesterday The Tennessean reported that Governor Haslam has not ruled out using his veto pen again.  Speaking after legislators adjourned for the year, he said, "They have a constitutional responsibility and we do too." 

There's still a chance, which we means we have to do all we can to push for a veto of the Counseling Discrimination bill and the effort to take funds away from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville's diversity office.

TAKE ACTION EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIVE IN TENNESSEE:

1. Call or Tweet the Governor asking him to veto HB1840 because it is bad for the counseling profession and bad for clients.  Tweet using @BillHaslam and #VetoHB1840.  You can call and leave a message at 615-741-2001.  When you have called or Tweeted, let us know at this link.

2.  Sign the petition urging the Governor to veto the bill taking funds away from UT-Knoxville's diversity office at this link.

3. If you've already done both, consider forwarding the email to friends.

Thank you for fighting so hard during this tough legislative session.

Gratefully,

Chris Sanders
Executive Director
