Don’t Allow Discrimination Against LGBT Persons

Target: Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas

Goal: Do not prevent transgender students from using their chosen bathroom or allow adoption agencies to discriminate based on personal religious beliefs.

Two newly-proposed Texas bills would allow discrimination against the LGBT community. One of the bills pushes transgender students to use individual designated bathrooms as opposed to bathrooms that match their gender identity. The other bill allows faith-based adoption agencies to discriminate based on their own religious beliefs. Demand that the governor not sign these discriminatory bills.

The bathroom bill, as its been called, passed through the House after a threat of an extended summer session. The reworked version of the original bathroom bill was added as an amendment on an emergency operations preparedness bill. Now, it calls for one last signature in the Senate. The adoption and foster care bill passed through the Senate in a 21-10 vote and awaits the governor’s signature.

These bills target vulnerable children and prevent foster kids from being placed in loving homes. Sign below and demand that the governor not pass these discriminatory bills.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Abbott,

Two discriminatory bills targeting transgender students and LGBT couples are dangerously close to becoming law. These bills put children at risk and prevent foster kids from finding loving homes with LGBT families. We demand that you don’t sign these bills into law.

The bathroom bill pushes transgender children to use designated individual bathrooms and locker rooms. This would paint a dangerous target on the children’s backs and could amplify anti-LGBT bullying. The adoption and foster care bill protects the “sincerely held religious beliefs” of child welfare service workers, blatantly allowing discrimination based on sexual orientation.

These bills only serve to promote bigotry and hatred. Take a stand for LGBT rights and don’t sign these bills into law.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
