Take action! Urge Ala. Gov. Ivey to veto extreme anti-LBGT+ bills

Alabama lawmakers recently passed legislation outlawing gender-affirming care for kids, as well as a copycat “Don’t Say Gay” bill tacked on to an anti-trans bathroom bill.

SB 184 would make it a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, for a doctor to prescribe puberty blockers or hormones to aid in the gender transition of people under age 19. HB 322 would “prohibit classroom instruction or discussion on sexual orientation or gender identity” for students in K-5, going even further than Florida’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which applied to K-3 grades.

Anti-LGBTQ legislative efforts are rooted in religious dogma. For example, the nationwide effort known as Project Blitz includes sweeping anti-LGBTQ measures while advancing the lie that America is a Christian nation, aiming to cement religiously motivated discrimination into the law. These bills, like those before them, are an attempt to perpetuate unscientific views about “biological sex” and to baselessly paint transgender students as predators.

Please urge Gov. Kay Ivey to veto these cruel bills. Feel free to use or adapt the talking points provided. Personalized messages are always the most impactful.
