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.

    This doesnt only affect the LGBT community but it affects women with it’s vague references to “men” in the bill.

    I believe in a FREE America one with actual civil liberties why do we allow a religion to dictate how others should live their life. Isn’t that part of the reason we fled from Great Britain in the first place?

    PLEASE veto this bill. There is a moral obligation to see to the rights of all be protected. There is no need for this. It takes us in the opposite direction of progress and a peaceful society.
