The White House is poised to sign an executive order that could be the most sweeping attack on LGBTQ and women’s rights in the name of religion that we have ever seen.
Today, you need to act: contact the President and tell him he should reject any order that uses religion as an excuse to discriminate against LGBTQ people, women and others.
This week a draft executive order was leaked from the White House that is shocking in scope. It authorizes religion to be used as a reason to discriminate in hiring, public services and benefits, healthcare, adoption and foster care services, education and more. The order targets LGBTQ people and women, but it would also affect those of minority faiths, nontheists and almost anyone else.
The harm it could cause to real people is hard to overstate. It reads like a wish list put together by the forces who have been leading the charge to discriminate against LGBTQ people and women under the guise of religious freedom. We’ve got to act so that Trump doesn’t grant their wishes.
Email the White House today and tell the President that enshrining discrimination in our nation’s laws is not religious freedom. Urge him not to sign this disgraceful executive order.
