Okay, so I am a founding member of The Tennessee Equality Project and serve on the TEP Foundation board of directors. Ultimately, however, I’m just a Tennessean, just a Nashvillian who agrees in fairness, equality and quite frankly is getting very restless waiting for local good news.

It’s Time! Equality Starts at Home and you need to participate. It’s about non discrimination, it’s about equalty treatment , its about you, your sister, your brother, your cousin, your friend, your mom and your dad. Take action, do something today.

Support a Metro Nashville non-discrimination ordinance

Contact Nashville Metro Council and urge your representatives to support a non-discrimination ordinance that includes sexual orientation and gender identity or expression for Metro government employees. Use this web form to contact the 5 Metro Council Members at Large.

And on the National Level:

Enclusive ENDA Introduced! Ask your US Representative to Become a Co-sponsor!

Use this form to contact your state representative

This week, Representative Barney Frank, joined by Reps. Tammy Baldwin and Jared Polis, introduced an inclusive version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)—which would extend the existing federal law prohibiting employment discrimination to protect people on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
The bill was introduced by a group of bi-partisan Representatives and it is important that you contact your legislator to become a cosponsor as well. Becoming a cosponsor shows that the Representative will stand firm with our community and helps build momentum for the bill’s passage.

Okay – so a couple of clicks and you can change the world in your neighborhood and help strengthen the momentum nationwide.
