Tell Mississippi Legislators to Oppose SB 2681

Vote NO on SB 2681, the bill that would write segregation and discrimination in to our laws.

Why is this important?

SB 2681, "Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act," an Arizona-style law was recently approved 48-0 by the Mississippi Senate.

Like similar bills in Kansas and Arizona, this bill would write segregation and discrimination into our laws. It could give doctors, nurses, and other trusted professionals a license to discriminate against any LGBTQ people and any other person based on religious grounds.

SB 2681, Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act, could allow any person or business in our state to challenge a “burden” on religion. This means that someone could use their religious beliefs to challenge virtually any law, including criminal and other laws that protect our health and safety.

SB 2681, passed the state Senate with 48 yes-votes, zero no-votes, and will now go up for a vote in the House. If passed, it would go into effect July 1, 2014.

But we have a chance to stop this terrible bill – the Mississippi House has not yet voted on the bill and we need your help to prevent them from passing this law!

SIGN this petition and tell Mississippi legislators to STOP this license to discriminate!
