Georgia lawmakers are threatening more anti-LGBT attacks in 2017!
Can you believe it? Are they blind to what’s happening in North Carolina and Mississippi?
We’re no longer dealing in theoreticals, here. There’s PROOF that anti-LGBT laws are national PR disasters and economic repellents.
But some lawmakers are so preoccupied with rolling back the rights of LGBT Georgians that they will overlook or willfully ignore the glaring evidence that anti-LGBT laws aren’t just bad for gay and transgender people—they’re bad for the state at large.
Lawmakers: Stop with the legislative threats. Make sure your legislators know another anti-LGBT crusade is NOT what Georgians want. Click here to send your message.
Let me paint a picture of what Georgia stands to lose if lawmakers force an anti-LGBT bill next year.
• Thousands of jobs and millions dollars. This is what North Carolina lost in future investments alone in the first two weeks since passing one of the most egregious anti-LGBT laws in the country.
• Travel bans and economic boycotts from entertainment icons. Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, and Bryan Adams have all cancelled shows in NC and MS in opposition to state-sanctioned discrimination.
• Immeasurable reputational damage as Georgia forfeits its place as leader of the south and abandons the qualities of openness and inclusion that have made it the #1 place to do business for 5 years in a row.
You can’t deny the facts. Georgia did the right thing this year by laying HB 757 to rest.
Next year, we will continue to lead the region, in business and in civil rights—but only if lawmakers commit to dropping the anti-LGBT attacks.
Send a message to your lawmakers today calling them to drop anti-LGBT bills in 2017 and focus on important issues facing our state.
The madness stops here.

But still, despite this overwhelming proof that state-sanctioned LGBT discrimination is BAD news, some Georgia lawmakers are threatening to revive their anti-LGBT crusade when the legislature returns in 2017.
Georgia did the right thing this year by laying HB 757 to rest. Next year, we will continue to lead the region, in business and in civil rights—but only if lawmakers commit to dropping the anti-LGBT attacks.
