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.
