Our children should have the freedom to be themselves and be safe from gun violence.

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 distract from passing the gun violence prevention laws most Tennesseans want while they deny us the basic rights, resources, and respect all people deserve.

We are calling on Tennessee lawmakers to let our children be themselves and to keep them safe in our schools and community by passing the gun violence prevention laws that are supported by an overwhelming majority of Tennesseans.

Make Tennessee a place where each one of us has the freedom to be ourselves, pursue our dreams, and are safe in our community and schools.

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.
