Please, vote NO on SB228/HB3 on March 18.
The sponsors have not demonstrated the need for this bill. There are no stories or statistics about schools in Tennessee that indicate there is a problem. So this bill will not result in protecting women's athletics because transgender students are not a threat.
This bill stigmatizes transgender youth and the law should never be used for such a purpose.
We know that a similar law has been enjoined in Idaho. This bill will result in legal costs and put a target on Tennessee for boycotts at a time when our tourism industry needs to recover.
Please, vote NO and put an end to these attack bills. Thank you for considering my views.
