SAMPLE SCRIPT:

“Hello, my name is [insert your name], I’m calling to ask you to please vote NO on house bill 583 by Representative Artiles when it comes before the Government Operations Subcommttee on Tuesday 3/17/15.

This Transgender Discrimination Bill, H.B. 583, seeks to criminalize transgender people by making it illegal for them to enter sex segregated facilities such as bathrooms, locker rooms, or dressing rooms. H.B. 583 would also compel businesses to discriminate against their own employees and customers, and invalidate nondiscrimination policies that already exist on the local level.

The arguments for this bill are the same lies and scare tactics we have seen defeated time and again in cities across Florida and states across the country. Concerns raised about public safety in public facilities have absolutely no basis in fact. To date, 17 states and 28 municipalities in Florida have passed and successfully implemented human rights ordinances that provide protections to the transgender community with absolutely no increase in public safety incidents.

Instead, this bill hurts businesses and individuals by leaving them open to unnecessary litigation and hurts Florida’s reputation nationwide.
Please vote NO on HB 583.”
*When speaking with legislators or their staff, please make sure to be firm but POLITE.*
