For weeks, we’ve been emailing you, urging you to take action against a “license to discriminate” RFRA bill now making its way through the Georgia General Assembly.
We’ve kept you updated with every twist and turn as our opponents have tried to slip this discriminatory law past the people of Georgia.
And together, we’ve harnessed an incredible grassroots force to be reckoned with. When legislative session began, some thought RFRA was a done deal. Today, the bill is now on life support.
When the Georgia General Assembly shuts their doors tomorrow at midnight, they’ll also be shutting down the last opportunity for RFRA to pass this year.
But make no mistake: The final hours are the most critical. That’s when legislators will be making deals on the floor. It’s up to us to ensure they don’t jeopardize Georgia’s good standing and reputation by sneaking past an Indiana-style RFRA bill.
If we’ve learned anything from this experience, it’s that our opponents will resort to the lowest common denominator in order to enshrine legalized discrimination into state law.
And when legislators work into the late hours tomorrow evening, you can be certain that RFRA supporters will be there, trying to wheel and deal their way into passing this discriminatory and mean-spirited law.
Our only weapon: Accountability. Click here to tell your Representative that we are watching, and we will hold our elected leaders responsible if they dare to pass a “license to discriminate” RFRA law.
Let’s continue to hold their feet to the fire.SHARE THIS STORY
