There are rare moments when we have the chance to take a simple action that can change the future of our state for the better.
Today is one of those times.
As Georgians, we believe everyone deserves to be protected from discrimination.
Not just people who look like we do, live like we do, or believe like we do.
That’s why, last week, Republicans and Democrats worked together to stop SB 129, a dangerous bill that would allow people and businesses to use religion as an excuse to discriminate.
But the battle isn’t over. Monday morning at 10 AM, the House Judiciary committee will meet again to decide whether to support this dangerous law.
This is our last chance to stop this terrible bill.
Right now, extremists like Erick Erickson are bullying three brave Republicans – Rep. Mike Jacobs, Rep. Beth Beskin and Rep. Jay Powell – trying to get them to change their votes.
Here’s how we can stand up to bullies like Erick Erickson:
Before 10 AM Monday, thank Rep. Jacobs, Rep. Beskin and Rep. Powell for voting against discrimination and urge them to stand strong.
We’ve made it easy. You can either call them at the numbers listed or simply click on their name to quickly email them a note of support.
|Capitol #||District #|
|Rep. Mike Jacobs||(404) 656-5116||(404) firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Rep. Beth Beskin||(404) 656-0254||(404) email@example.com|
|Rep. Jay Powell||(404) 656-5103||(229) firstname.lastname@example.org|
We don’t have to guess what will happen if Georgia passes this extreme legislation.
We already know.
Just last week, Indiana passed a similar law, and immediately faced criticism from the NCAA and promises of boycotts from the business and entertainment community.
Failing to protect ALL citizens from discrimination is bad for business.
So bad that, now, even Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is having second thoughts.
That’s why Georgia businesses like Home Depot, and sports teams like the Atlanta Hawks have stepped up to oppose Georgia’s “License to Discriminate” bill.
And that’s why lawmakers from both parties joined together to stop Georgia from following Indiana’s bad example.
Right now, history is being made in Georgia. Whether SB 129 passes or fails, everyone reading this will remember whether or not they took a single, simple action to stop the right to discriminate from becoming law in Georgia.
Before 10 AM on Monday, lawmakers need to hear that you support them in their stand against discrimination.
A personal contact from you will make all the difference.
Will you join us to say NO to discrimination in Georgia?
