Take Action to Protect TN Students' Access to Resources and Support!

On Wednesday, February 8th, the Tennessee House K-12 Subcommittee will hold a hearing on the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill (SB0049/HB0229), which would prevent teachers and schools from discussing sexual orientation other than heterosexuality. This endangers LGBT students by preventing them from accessing needed information and resources, opening these students up to further bullying, harassment, and discrimination

The bill potentially limits student access to supportive teachers as well as library books that discuss LGBT issues or even have LGBT characters. 

THIS BILL WILL MAKE LGBT STUDENTS INVISIBLE.

If you live in TN, we need your help! Call NOW to ask committee members to oppose this harmful bill!

Ask the K-12 Subcommittee members to oppose this bill. Please contact any members you can, particularly if you live in one of their districts.
