We Are Watching Stop Sb127 Rally says
On Monday, as protestors shouted "NO 127" in the hallway of the Capitol, the Senate chose to roll SB127 until Wednesday 2/15 at 8:30. "Rolling" a bill means delaying a vote until another time. So, because of questions posed to the bill sponsor and likely the pressure they're receiving from the public, they decided to postpone the vote.

Please help us keep the pressure up! Join us at the Capitol Wednesday morning to greet the senators as they enter the senate chambers and to remind them that #WeAreWatching and expect them to vote against discrimination and against SB127.

**PLEASE NOTE!** If you can't be there at 8:00 or can't stay the entire time- that's OK! If you can only come for a short while, your voice is still needed and important!

SB127 is legislation promoting taxpayer-funded discrimination against LGBTQ Tennesseans and their families. The discriminatory proposal would prohibit state agencies and municipalities from requiring businesses, organizations, contractors, and grantees, to not have policies that discriminate against LGBTQ people.

This bill is completely unnecessary and designed for one purpose only - to target the LGBTQ community.
