Don’t Discriminate Against Transgender Students

Target: Juan Hinojosa, Texas State Senator and President Pro Tempore of the senate

Goal: Reject bill that discriminates against transgender students.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, President of the Texas State Senate, is working to push a bill through the senate that would discriminate against the state’s transgender community by not allowing transgender students to use the bathroom corresponding with the gender by which they identify.

Patrick is so intent on getting this discriminatory bill passed that he is refusing to move forward with an important medical bill until it is. He is effectively holding his state’s senate “hostage” and arguing for a special session just to push the bill through. Schools will not be able to opt out of this bill.

The government cannot tell a person how they should identify and should not be able to rob a person of their fundamental rights and their freedom to feel safe. In addition, statistics that Patrick and his fellow Republicans are using to support this discrimination, statistics that accuse transgender individuals of using the bathroom to assault others, is completely false. Sign the petition and demand that this bill not be passed.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Hinojosa

A bill being proposed in your state’s senate will take away rights for transgender individuals if passed. It discriminates against them, putting misguided beliefs and false rumors before their rights and safety.

I ask that you rally your fellow members of the senate to reject the bill, putting the rights and safety of the citizens of your state first. Which bathroom an individual uses is a private matter, not one for the government to delegate.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
