Tennessee Residents: Act Now to Stop the Don’t Say Gay Bill!

Today, the Tennessee House Education Committee will vote 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 bill already passed the Senate and the K-12 Subcommittee, so we need to act now to kill the bill!
 
The Don’t Say Gay bill endangers LGBT students by preventing students facing harassment and discrimination from accessing needed information and resources. The bill potentially limits student access to supportive teachers as well as library books that discuss LGBT issues or even have LGBT characters.

We need your help! Call Now to ask committee members to oppose this harmful bill! 

This bill is especially dangerous because it makes LGBT students "invisible" and may prevent them from discussing harassment with supportive teachers and staff.

Call Now and ask the House Education Committee members to oppose this bill. Please contact any members you can, particularly if you live in one of their districts.
