Tell your state senator: protect LGBTQ people in NH

Act Now

LGBTQ people belong in New Hampshire – but right now, the New Hampshire Senate is deciding on five bills that are harmful attacks on their rights. These bills have already passed the State House of Representatives, meaning if they are passed by the Senate, they could be heading to Governor Sununu’s desk.

One bill, HB 396, would roll back anti-discrimination protections for transgender people in schools, sports teams, safer carceral housing placements, and other spaces – which would violate the rights of transgender Granite Staters under state and federal law as well as create an avenue to increase discrimination and harassment they already face.

HB 619 and HB 1660 target essential healthcare for transgender youth, which is widely recognized as the only evidence-based approach to addressing the physical, mental, and emotional needs of transgender youth and is essential in reducing severe mental health risks.

Lastly, HB 1205 and HB 1312 target transgenders students in school. HB 1205 would ban transgender girls from playing on middle school, high school, and college teams corresponding to the gender they live every day, and HB 1312, a classroom censorship bill, would require parental notification on any course material referencing LGBTQ health and identities.

There's no time to wait: Tell your state representative to oppose HB 396, HB 619, HB 1660, HB 1205, and HB 1312 when they vote soon!

As your constituent, I am writing to ask you to vote against every single bill in the slate of bills attacking LGBTQ rights and make clear once again that New Hampshire supports and values its transgender youth and greater LGBTQ community.

If passed, these bills would be devastating to the lives of many Granite Staters who are our family, friends, and valued community members. Please oppose them.
