Add your name and urge Governor Haslam to veto SB1085/HB1111, the Sneaky LGBT Erasure Bill.  After you sign the petition, share it with your friends.  We will deliver a hard copy of the signatures to the Governor's Office.  Your voice can help determine whether he uses the VETO pen or the BECOMES LAW pen!

Dear Governor Haslam,

We ask you to veto SB1085/HB1111.  This bill, as the Attorney General has noted, is broadly written.  Its vagueness could result in conflicts with existing laws about judicial interpretation.  These conflicts are likely to cause discrimination against LGBTQ people, particularly with respect to marriage, adoption, and legal documents.  This bill risks subjecting Tennessee to the same scrutiny that North Carolina has received.  We cannot afford hundreds of millions of dollars in economic boycotts and sanctions.  Please, veto this bill so we can avoid judicial chaos and costly discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.

    We know so much more today about the complex individual sexuality that a human being may have. We must respect and protect all people as we move together through our place in time. Thank you

    As a native Tennesseean who left in part due to discrimination, I can personally vouch for the economic costs of legislation like this. You are driving out skilled workers and making life harder for those constituents who stay. Do what’s best for everyone and veto this bill.

    Governor, please veto Bill SB1085/HB1111. We need to ensure that Tennessee is a safe and welcoming place for all people. This is not a good bill. It will wreak havoc. Please provide the courageous leadership we need.
