Gay Rights are Under Attack in Georgia

Tell Gov. Deal to veto Georgia's anti-gay legislation.

“Gov. Deal: Stand up for equality by vetoing legislation that would legalize discrimination against gay and lesbian Georgians.

You promised to reject any measure that 'allows discrimination in our state in order to protect people of faith,' and Georgia voters are counting on you to make good on your word."

    Since the Supreme Court decision supporting marriage equality, Georgia conservatives have unleashed a flurry of bills designed to legalize discrimination against gay and lesbian Georgians.

    Under the thin guise of so-called religious “freedom,” radical lawmakers are pushing legislation that would give people the right to refuse service or housing to people -- just because they’re gay, lesbian and transgender.

    All of these so-called religious “freedom” bills are completely unnecessary; freedom of religion is already protected under the First Amendments of the U.S. and Georgia Constitutions.

    Tell Gov. Deal and all lawmakers that we won’t stand by while Georgia conservatives try to turn the clocks back to the 1950s. Every Georgian -- regardless of race, religion, gender, age or sexual orientation -- deserves the right to live free of state-sanctioned discrimination.
