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

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.

Tell Tennessee lawmakers to vote no on the License to Bully bill!
