Being a kid is hard enough. We should be making it easier, not harder. These bills are unfair and would harm trans youth. We will fight for every single one of Tennessee’s young people because they deserve respect and dignity like anyone else.
The time to act is NOW - let your legislators know that they must reject these discriminatory bills that would harm vulnerable trans youth.
The letter provided below is a sample template. Please change it to personalize it to your views and concerns. Here are a few key pieces of information you may wish to reference:
• Being a kid is hard enough. We should be making it easier, not harder.
• Trans youth deserve the opportunity to play the sports they love as their authentic selves, just like any other young athlete.
• School personnel should not have the right to determine the identities of others.
• Passing bills like SB 2153 would embolden other discriminatory laws to be passed across the state, putting trans people in harm’s way, yet again.
Don’t let a few extremist politicians put trans kids and teens at risk!
