It’s official: Georgia Senators just voted to advance the shameful First Amendment Defense Act (HB 757), Claire.
Now all eyes are on the House. The bill may by-pass committee—just another shady maneuver on the part of lawmakers to force anti-LGBT legislation through the legislature without due consideration.
Next up: House vote. FADA is literally ONE step from passing out of the legislature to the Governor’s desk. And we could have mere days to stop this legislation before discrimination is written into Georgia law.
What does FADA do? It allows individuals and religiously affiliated organizations to discriminate against and deny services to people in the name of religion—all while receiving public funding.
This is no more than state-sanctioned discrimination in the name of religion. End point.
FADA is an abomination and serious threat to all Georgians. And it is one House vote from passing. This is our final chance to to stop this thing in the General Assembly—starting NOW.
