What can I do about the bathroom bill and the marriage bill?

Yesterday the anti-transgender student bathroom bill (SB771/HB888) and the TN Natural Marriage Defense Act (SB752/HB892) were filed by Sen. Mae Beavers and Rep. Mark Pody.  The bill filing deadline for Tennessee is today, so more could be coming.  When the bills are up in committee we will ask you to contact those committees about the bills.

Here's what we need now:

1. If you can attending Advancing Equality Days on the Hill-part 2 on March 7, RSVP here.  If you want to be a district captain who leads meetings with your legislators, contact me at chris@tnequalityproject.com .  Here is a list of current district captains leading meetings for that date.  If your senator or representative is not on the list, then we need you to help us fill out the schedule.

2. We have events coming up across the state including a Lobbying 101 in the Chattanooga area.  Get involved in one of them.  You can see the list here. We can always add more because we want advocacy to come to you and be accessible.

3. Consider making a small monthly contribution to fuel the defense of the LGBT community at this link.

Gratefully yours,

Chris Sanders
Executive Director
