The latest religious exemption bill – the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act – would allow businesses and individuals to use their religious beliefs as an excuse to harm and discriminate against others—including gay and transgender people. Sen. Josh McKoon has made it his singular mission to pass a harmful religious exemptions law that would open a can of worms, leaving thousands of Georgians vulnerable to discrimination.
And he is not interested in compromise. But we’ve got power in numbers.
Georgia’s legislative session has resumed. We are mobilizing the grassroots campaign we need to defeat Georgia’s RFRA once and for all. It’s going to be a fight. We are organizing volunteers to help get the word out.
We need your support!
