Tell TN Lawmakers: Vote No on the License to Bully bill

This petition had 1,519 supporters

Legislation (HB1153/SB0760) filed in the Tennessee General Assembly would allow youth to escape consequences for bullying, intimidation and harassment of fellow students while expressing their "religious, philosophical, or political views.” Such a policy would provide students and school staff a license to bully students because of race, ethnicity, sex, religious preference, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or other attributes.

Michigan State Senator Gretchen Whitmer fought hard to stop a similar "License to Bully" bill in her state. In her video above, she encourages Tennesseans to contact their elected officials to stop bad bullying policies in the Volunteer State.
