The United Campus Workers Gender Equity Committee adamantly opposes any and all legislation which prevents LGBT families from having equal rights under the law. HB836/SB1304 is discriminatory and unconscionable. At its core, it reflects prejudice against LGBT people and causes undue suffering for Tennessee’s most vulnerable children. This bill sets a dangerous precedent in that it allows private adoption agencies to take our public funds and then deny the very same taxpayers equal rights. It also places the State in a position to determine who does and does not constitute a family.
