Children’s Rights Opposes Tennessee Discrimination Bill

On January 14, Tennessee lawmakers passed a bill that will allow taxpayer-funded child welfare agencies to discriminate against same-sex couples and other prospective parents based on their religious beliefs. Christina Wilson Remlin, Lead Counsel for Children’s Rights, issued this statement opposing the bill:

“Along with many visionary and hardworking leaders within the state’s child welfare system Children’s Rights worked to improve policies, programs and outcomes for children in foster care. We vehemently oppose any move that would limit the number of safe and loving homes available to children who need and deserve them. We ask the advocacy and business communities and all others who have spoken out against SB 1304 in the past to renew their calls for equality and urge Governor Bill Lee to reject a bill that is bad public policy and harmful to innocent kids.”
