Dozens of states have passed or are considering laws safeguarding religious freedom, protecting girls and women’s sports, and shielding children from life-changing and body-damaging transgender medical procedures. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) says the number of measures introduced this year means the country is in a “state of crisis.”
HRC – and other LGBT activist groups – call this legislation “anti-LGBT,” and they’re enlisting businesses to pressure states against passing such measures. The organization states, “So far, 87 companies have signed the Business Statement Opposing Anti-LGBTQ State Legislation stating their clear opposition to harmful legislation aimed at restricting the access of LGBTQ people in society (their emphasis).”
Companies signing the letter, that oppose preserving religious freedom, saving girls sports and protecting children, include big names such as: Airbnb, Amazon, American Airlines, Apple, AT&T, Capital One, Dell, Facebook, Hilton, IBM, Marriott, Microsoft, Pepsi, Pfizer, Uber and Verizon.
Uffda News side note: “Our dollars and business support impact Big Business success. It’s time for Americans to wake up and hit them where it hurts. Their shareholder’s interest! They lose money; they lose business, shareholders lose interest. Boycott companies that oppose preserving religious freedoms and our core American values.”
HRC President David Alphonso recently held an “emergency press conference on anti-LGBTQ bills.” He said, “Today, we are here to ring the alarm bells, and to highlight for all of you, and the general public, that we are in a state of crisis and that we need action now.” From The Daily Citizen.
