Across our races, backgrounds, and genders, most of us want our kids to have the freedom to learn, to be themselves, and to grow up healthy and safe.
But today, certain politicians are pushing laws that restrict our freedoms because of the color of our skin, what’s in our wallets, or because we are transgender. They exploit divisions and fears among us so they can get and hold onto power, denying us the basic rights, resources, and respect all people deserve. They exploit a lack of familiarity with transgender people, excluding trans kids from healthcare, school, or sports. They stoke fear so we turn against some group instead of coming together to demand what our families need.
We're calling on all elected leaders to reject efforts to restrict our freedom to be ourselves - and our kids' freedom to be themselves. Make Tennessee a place where each one of us has the freedom to be ourselves, get the health care we need, pursue our dreams, and have a good life — no exceptions.
Whenever a powerful few have tried to pick and choose who counts, there have always been those of us who showed up for each other and built welcoming communities. Now it’s our time to show up, reject division, and chart a better future for all of us, no matter our ages, races, or genders.
