Governor Brewer, Veto SB1062!
Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.
Governor Brewer, you have an opportunity to stand up for all Arizonans by vetoing the anti-business, anti-equality, anti-American Senate Bill 1062. You've already done damage to Arizona's brand by passing the anti-immigrant S.B. 1070, which was ruled to be unconstitutional. Don't make that mistake again—veto S.B. 1062!
Why is this important?
Arizona is the latest state to be hit by anti-LGBTQ bills that have been sent to the state legislature by hate groups that are doing everything in their power to roll back civil rights laws. Since these groups know that they can no longer be up front about their hatred of LGBTQ Americans, they've now taken to using "religious liberty" bills (that are neither religious nor rooted in preserving liberty) to shield their hatred.
Arizona's SB1062 would give anyone a free pass to discriminate against anyone -- not limited solely to the LGBTQ community -- as long as they invoke religion as the reason for their discrimination. This would mean that hotel owners could turn away interracial couples, police officers could refuse to help Muslim motorists, and firefighters could watch as a gay couple's home burns to the ground.
Businesses in Arizona do not support this bill, and one business has even said that they will not relocate to Arizona -- already costing the state 1,000 jobs. This bill is bad for business, bad for the state, and devastating to all Arizonans. The bill has passed both the House and Senate in Arizona, so it is now on Governor Jan Brewer's desk for signature or veto. We're calling on Governor Brewer to do the right thing and veto SB1062!
