STOP #HB583

Dear Representative _________________,

I, _____________________, strongly urge you to OPPOSE the discriminatory HB583 proposal currently under consideration in the Florida House of Representatives.

HB583 would criminalize access to public facilities for transgender Floridians. HB583 is a misguided, mean-spirited, and incendiary bill which targets transgender Floridians just for being who they are. It's not who we are as Floridians, and per the U.S. Constitution, it's not who we are as Americans.

If passed, HB583 would be unconstitutional, and furthermore it would invite all types of frivolous litigation by those looking to use the measure as a means to discriminate against not only transgender Floridians, but also those who refuse to discriminate against them.

HB583 would be a disaster for our state, driving away visitors and hurting our economy which depends so much on opening our arms to the world's tourists.

For the above stated reasons, and additionally for many more reasons not stated here, I urge you to OPPOSE HB583.

By working together, we can make Florida a better place for everyone. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

____________________

    This is an abuse, a complete lack of respect for human beings and our differences.

    People who create laws like these should be caged, if you think or behave this way, I’m really sorry for your misery.

    I know many who would consider this a muddled issue. Many who would make this into an arguement for or against shifting gender lines, but it’s not. This is cut and dry. This is simplicity at it’s simplest. It is an individuals right to equal treatment, regardless of race, religion, or gender.


    In denying transgender people basic use of public facilities, we may as well be stepping back into the days before integration of schools. Is the state of human rights in this country falling so far that the phrase “seperate but equal” will be applicable soon? I hope not…

    As a young bisexual, who struggled with identity, I would be honored to live in such a world in which those who have so bravely found themselves are able to go about their daily lives in harmony with the rest of us.
