Urge Senators Alexander and Corker to speak up for LGBTQ people when the next Supreme Court justice is appointed

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring so the President will name a successor who must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.  Sign to urge Senator Alexander and Senator Corker to speak up for the LGBTQ community during the confirmation process.  TEP will deliver a hard copy of the signatures to their offices.

Senator Alexander and Senator Corker:

When the President announces his choice to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, we urge you to speak up for the rights of LGBTQ people.  It is vitally important that members of the Supreme Court support the principle of "equal protection" and that Justice Kennedy's successor uphold the existing rights of LGBTQ people and oppose discrimination against LGBTQ people.  We respectfully ask you to raise these concerns publicly and not to vote for any nominee who supports discrimination.

    Senator Alexander, years ago I stood as a child in your Governor’s office as you swore my father in as a new judge here in Montgomery County, back in 1979. I remember the pride that day I felt both as a son and as a Tennessean. Today, I ask you to honor my life and countless thousands of my fellow LGBT+ Tennesseans because we are genuinely fearful that we will once again be used as anti gay fodder for political games at our expense. I am gay, Senator. I have voted for you every term because of that day in summer 1979. Then, you stood for a man to is, today, the longest serving judge in Tennessee. Now, I ask you to stand for me… and all of us. We are not pawns. I urge you to remember us, and the struggle we continue today… a struggle not only for respect, but also for our very lives. LGBT equality isn’t about anything less than the right to be treated with the same dignity and respect we give to anyone else. And the same honor.


    Thank you, Senator.
