ACT NOW: Condemn Tennessee House's unjust expulsion of Reps. Jones & Pearson

Tennessee House Leadership

2 elected Tennessee lawmakers, Rep. Justin Jones and Rep. Justin Pearson, have been expelled from the state House – for nothing more than chanting in solidarity with gun safety protestors.

Adding insult to injury between the party line votes to expel these two young Black legislators, a few GOP lawmakers flipped their votes to prevent a third potential expulsion of Rep. Gloria Johnson, who is white.

The right to choose our own representatives – and the right to peaceful protest – have been denied to Black Americans time and time again. I’m appalled to see history repeat itself in Tennessee, and I hope you’ll join me to condemn this injustice >>

I condemn your decision to remove two democratically elected lawmakers, Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson, from office. Their constituents chose them to represent them -- and expelling them for simply doing their jobs is unjust.
