Giving Thanks To All Organizations Who Helped Stop RFRA In GA This Year April 15, 2015

TYThe last few months have been incredible. Together, we showed what happens when a group of concerned citizens come together to stop a mean-spirited and discriminatory law. And together we stopped the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) from moving forward in Georgia in 2015.

Here at Georgia Unites Against Discrimination, we know that we could have never secured this victory, if it weren’t for all of our incredible supporters, as well as the coalition of organizations that worked together to defeat this bill.

True to our name, this was a united effort. And each and every organization involved played an integral part to defeating this dangerous piece of legislation. So without further ado, we’d like to extend our warmest gratitude to the following organizations for their work and support in this historic victory. We could not have done it without you.

Georgia Equality
Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce
ACLU of Georgia
Americans United for Separation of Church and State
Human Rights Campaign
American Unity Fund
Gerry Weber, Constitutional Lawyer (Atlanta)
Lambda Legal
The Georgia Hospitality Association
The Georgia Hotel and Lodging Association
Faith in Public Life
Planned Parenthood Southeast
ProGeorgia
SOJOURN
Jewish Community Relations Council of Atlanta
Anti-Defamation League, Southeast Regional Office
Feminist Women’s Health Center
Georgia NAACP
Presbyterians for a Better Georgia
Moral Monday Georgia
Central Outreach & Advocacy Center

And finally, we would like to thank House Speaker David Ralston for his crucial work to help stop RFRA from being brought to a floor vote in the House.

United, we are a stronger Georgia. We look forward to working with each of these organizations in the coming weeks and months to stop RFRA once again in 2016 and advance efforts to protect gay and transgender Georgians from discrimination.

Gerald was fired as a child welfare worker because he is gay. #SCOTUS has a chance to affirm all #LGBTQ people should be able to live and work without fear of discrimination. Oral arguments will be on October 8 in the cases about LGBTQ workers. @Reuters msn.com/en-us/news/us/…
