TAKE ACTION: Urge a Tenn. Senate committee to vote “no” on a bill banning gender-affirming care

Benson We the People Web 1

Please take a moment to help protect trans youth in Tennessee by urging the Senate Health & Welfare Committee to reject the upcoming bill SB 1.

This is a dangerous bill that forbids health care providers from administering gender-affirming care to minors, including offering assistance in changing their name, or helping them socially transition. The bill is crafted around fabricated scenarios based on outdated religious thinking, such as children receiving care without their parents’ consent or regretting their decisions. This bill will inflict needless harm upon LGBTQ children if it passes by forbidding doctors from acting on their education and training to what they know is in their patients’ best interest.

This bill has a hearing on Feb. 1, so please contact the committee urgently. You may either use the prompt provided, or customize it as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
