I just signed a petition to The Arkansas State House, The Arkansas State Senate, and Governor Asa Hutchinson: HB 1228 is designed to discriminate against LGBT individuals under the guise of protecting religious freedoms.
PLEASE SPREAD THIS
Arkansas Senate has passed the bill HB 1228 and is just awaiting Asa Hutchinson’s signature (which he stated last week that if it passed to his desk he would sign it). This bill is incredibly dangerous for the LBGTQ community which is already extremely unprotected in Arkansas due to another bill that was passed last month prohibiting the protection for the LGBTQ under Arkansas law. So pretty much what this means is it’s open season for this community in Arkansas and HB 1228 is only going to make it easier for people to discriminate under the guise of religious freedom.
Multiple big name companies, the Mayor, multiple celebrities and the police cheif have spoken against this bill. Even Wal-mart, a hella conservative company has spoken against this bill and has urged Asa Hutchinson to veto the bill.
Please sign this, reblog this, post this link on your facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. Please, sign this and add to the voice how terrible this bill is, which is not only harmful to the LGBTQ community but also the economy in Arkansas due to the boycotting that many businesses have threatened to do which will hurt the already struggling job market in Arkansas and add to the poverty that is a major problem.
Please, just spread the word.
