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

    1. Petition by

      TENNESSEE EQUALITY PROJECT

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!

      If a religion allows bullying, the leaders of that religion should be removed from society.

      There is supposed to be a separation of Church and State for an important reason. Students should be able to go to school without the fear of harassment from their fellow students simply because they are doing it on the basis of religion

      Based on this reasoning, shouldn't we excuse the attacks on the U.S. when they're done for "sincerely held religious beliefs?"
