In 2005, TN lawmakers passed a proposed constitutional amendment that would prohibit the recognition of same-sex marriage. The measure will be on the ballot in 2006, unless the ACLU succeeds in stopping it.

State Reps. Beverly Marrero (D-Memphis), Tommie Brown (D-Chattanooga), Larry Turner (D-Memphis) and the Tennessee Equality Project have joined with the ACLU-TN in the lawsuit aimed at stopping the recently passed Hate Amendment from appearing on the ballot in 2006.
