It’s time for AT&T to raise the bar.
In states across the country, the nation’s second largest telecommunications provider has spoken out forcefully against discrimination towards the LGBT community. But in Georgia, as anti-LGBT forces are mobilizing to push through a law that will open the floodgates to discrimination, AT&T has stayed unusually silent.
Already, Georgia Equality has put the pressure on AT&T to join businesses across the state—including Delta Airlines and Marriott Hotels—who have spoken out against this “license to discriminate” bill. Now AT&T needs to hear from you.
Click here to tell AT&T to publicly oppose the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act—a bill that could allow individuals and businesses to use their religious beliefs as a justification to discriminate.
I can’t stress enough how dire the consequences will be if this bill passes into law.
As the bill stands now, it could allow individuals to use their religion as an excuse to ignore municipal laws including nondiscrimination laws, domestic violence laws and child abuse laws, in the name of religious freedom.
With an overwhelming, bipartisan majority of Georgians opposed to this bill, it’s time for AT&T to take a stand now. Click here to email AT&T’s Ralph de La Vega calling on AT&T to take a stand against discrimination.
The pressure is mounting on AT&T to stand on the right side of history. You can make an impact by making your voice heard now.SHARE THIS STORY
