Senator Mike Enzi Does Not Represent Wyoming!

Petition for His Resignation Today and Tell the World:

Wyoming is the Equality State and We Support Our LGBTQ Community!

On April 20, 2017 at Greybull High School, a student asked Senator Enzi how he is helping Wyoming live up to its motto, The Equality State. Enzi answered:

 “We always say that in Wyoming you can be just about anything you want to be, as long as you don’t push it in somebody’s face. I know a guy who wears a tutu and goes to bars on Friday night and is always surprised that he gets in fights. Well, he kind of asks for it. That’s the way that he winds up with that kind of problem. I’d be interested in any solutions that you have for how we can make that work better… The biggest thing that we need is civility.”

Please consider the high risk of assault that threatens our LGBTQ community, and let them know you do not think they “ask” to be victims of violence. Data regarding violence against non-heterosexuals is notoriously scarce, particularly here; yet we all take it for granted that if they “push it in somebody’s face” they “ask” for a fight. Give these folks hope and sign this petition. This will never remove Senator Enzi from office, but together we can tell him, the nation, and the students at Greybull that in this regard he does not represent you.
