Is "Hate Day on the Hill" a thing? Not officially, but there are two anti-LGBTQ bills up for consideration on March 14. The new anti-transgender bathroom bill will be up for consideration in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee and the Business License to Discriminate bill is up for discussion in the State Government Subcommittee.
Both subcommittees begin at 1:30 p.m. Central Time.
How can you help?
First, if you are able to attend the subcommittee meetings at the Cordell Hull Building in Nashville, please, RSVP here.
Second, use the form at this link to contact the Civil Justice Subcommittee to oppose the anti-transgender bathroom bill. You can contact the State Government Subcommittee in opposition to the Business License to Discriminate bill at this link.
Third, if you know Tennessee based clergy who might sign the letter against the bathroom bill, ask them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and city of residence.
Fourth, RSVP for the April 3 Advancing Equality Day on the Hill here. Discriminatory bills may still be moving late in the legislative session.
Thank you for all your efforts to advance equality and fight discrimination in Tennessee.
