Help Support the Texas Privacy Act

Today marks the beginning of the 2017 Texas Legislative Session - and we need your activism to start making an impact immediately. Please contact your State Senator today in support of the Texas Privacy Act (SB 6) that will protect the privacy, safety and dignity of Texans in bathrooms, locker rooms, and other intimate facilities.

The radical LGBT lobby has already launched a smear campaign against this commonsense bill and is pushing radical legislation that would actually force private businesses in Texas to allow men into girls' bathrooms. We need your help to ensure the voice of the Texas people is heard on this important issue.

Here is the truth about the Texas Privacy Act:

Texas Senator Lois Kolkhorst filed SB 6 to protect the privacy, safety and dignity of Texans in bathrooms, locker rooms, and other intimate facilities in all government buildings, including public schools. The bill makes it clear that government entities may not allow biological men and boys in girls' bathrooms and changing facilities. Government officials are to follow the biological sex listed on a person's birth certificate, as is the practice now for UIL athletics. The bill does not apply to private businesses or interfere with a business's ability to set its own policies.

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and Sen. Kolkhorst recently held a press conference announcing the legislation that you can watch here that provides even more information.

Texans overwhelmingly oppose the radical Left's attacks on women's privacy and safety as evidenced by Houston voters voting down a dangerous bathroom ordinance that would have allowed men into women's bathrooms, 61% - 39%. In addition, a recent poll shows that a strong majority of Texas voters agree that use of public restrooms should be restricted by gender.

TAKE ACTION TODAY TO SUPPORT THE TEXAS PRIVACY ACT:

  1. Contact Sen. Kolkhorst by email and by phone at (512) 463-0118, and contact Lt. Governor Patrick here and thank them both for their leadership on this important bill.
  2. Contact your State Senator and ask them to support the Texas Privacy Act and sign on as a sponsor.
