History has been made: Last week, the Supreme Court ruled, and marriage equality is now law of the land nationwide!
This means now, right here in Georgia, same-sex couples have secured the freedom to marry—an accomplishment that not that long ago seemed like a distant dream.
But while the nation celebrates this victory, the fact remains under Georgia state law: As same-sex couples rush to get married in Georgia, they can be fired from their jobs that very same day simply because of who they are.
Progress does not—and will not—end at the Supreme Court. With your help, we’ll make sure of it.
Time and time again this past legislative session, our opponents proved that their agenda is driven by nothing more than legalized discrimination against LGBT Georgians. And you can bet last week’s Supreme Court ruling will only embolden their efforts to pass the “license to discriminate” RFRA.
But we’ve proven ourselves too—as a broad-based movement of real Georgians who know discrimination is wrong and will fight for fairness for our neighbors, family and friends.
So now, with the momentum of the Supreme Court at our backs—and our opponents vowing to chip away at our advances—it’s time to kick this campaign into overdrive to defeat RFRA and make the case to lawmakers that the time is now to protect LGBT Georgians from discrimination.
We’re incredibly grateful for the countless supporters, organizations and leaders who made last week’s historic victory at the Supreme Court possible.
But we aren’t done. We know you aren’t either.SHARE THIS STORY
