Republicans made the dismantling of diversity, tolerance and inclusion their top priority during the 2016 legislative session.

They passed the Heritage Protection Act, to protect Confederate monuments in the state Capitol and at Middle Tennessee State University.

They defunded diversity programs at the University of Tennessee.

They passed a bill to let religious counselors turn away LGBT clients, over the objections of religious counselors.

They disbanded the Tennessee Economic Council on Women, which produced important research on the health of Tennessee families.

They opposed equal pay for equal work.

They pushed a bill to write discrimination against transgender students into state law, jeopardizing billions in education funding and drawing opposition from business leaders. 

Enough is enough. Stop the hate in the volunteer state.

    Anti LGBT bills are unconstitutional, morally wrong, and a liability for the state. The ACLU and other progressive activist groups will file lawsuits against any unjust legislation that passes, and I will fully support them. The cost impact that will aversely affect the state is well worth the human dignity price tag that hangs on discriminatory laws.

    This type of hate legislation is unconscionable. Let’s make Tennessee a leader in progressive, open and inclusive social issues instead of always being the butt of the joke, for a change.
