Take action to defeat the Don't Say Gay bill in the House

This petition had 508 supporters

Take action today to defeat the “Don’t Say Gay” bill (HB229) in the House Education Committee of the Tennessee General Assembly before 10:30 AM on Tuesday, April 10.

HB229 is “lightning rod” legislation in Tennessee that’s drawn worldwide attention to shameful bigotry and prejudice toward lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Tennessee. It’s time to end the message of intolerance bigotry inherent in HB229.

As amended, HB229 provides no meaningful education reform and may stigmatize Tennessee students who may be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

Tell House lawmakers to lay aside HB229 on the last calendar of the House Education Committee.
