Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick recently introduced SB6, the Texas bathroom bill, which discriminates against transgender people by mandating that they use bathrooms corresponding with the biological sex on their birth certificates. Legislators falsely claim that this discriminatory legislation is needed to protect women from assault.

SB6 is opposed by Equality Texas, the ACLU of Texas, and the Texas Association of Business because it legalizes discrimination and would cost our state's economy billions of dollars.

Unfortunately, we're SB6 has passed the Texas Senate despite overwhelming public testimony against the bill, but as students, we're in a position to contact our State Representatives and urge them to oppose this law once it reaches the house. Contact your Representative now and ask them to vote no on SB6!  Learn more at TexasStudents.org.
