Tell AT&T, Nissan, Comcast, and FedEx to withdraw their support for anti-gay legislation

The Tennessee Chamber of Commerce actively lobbied for the passage of a bill that would remove vital protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. As AmericaBlog and others have highlighted, this bill is bad for business and bad for Tennessee.

The Tennessee Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors includes the following major corporations:

Alcoa, AT&T, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar, Comcast, DuPont, Embraer, FedEx, KPMG, Nissan, Pfizer, United HealthCare, and Whirlpool.

Tell the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and these companies to immediately withdraw their support for this horribile bill. Discrimination is bad for business and bad for Tennessee.
