Stop erasure of the LGBTQ community in Tennessee schools

Home/Take Action/Stop erasure of the LGBTQ community in Tennessee schools

The House Education Instruction Committee will take up SB 1216/HB 800 on Wednesday, April 7 at 11 a.m.
(Last updated April 6, 2021. Check current bill status here.)

SB 1216/HB 800 is a straightforward effort to erase members of the LGBTQ community from our public schools by prohibiting any textbooks, instructional materials, or supplemental instructional materials that “promote, normalize, support, or address lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender (LGBT) issues or lifestyles.” This bill seeks to erase the advancements of the LGBTQ community from our children’s education and sends a dangerous message to LGBTQ children in Tennessee that they do not belong.

Please call or email House Education Instruction Committee members and urge them to vote NO on SB 1216/HB 800.
