From Brad Clark, Executive Director of One Colorado:
We need LGBT Lobby Day to be bigger than ever this year. Can we count on you to join us?
Just last week, Senators Pat Steadman and Lucia Guzman introduced the
Colorado Civil Union Act (SB-11). The bill has incredible support, but
our legislators are hearing from our opponents every day. They're
hearing lies and scare tactics. They're getting calls, e-mails, and
visits meant to keep civil unions from becoming law.
Our legislators need to hear from us at LGBT Lobby Day. Join us -- RSVP now!
the same day that civil unions was introduced, Representative Kevin
Priola introduced legislation that would allow anyone with a religious
conviction to deny employment, housing, or services to LGBT people.
It's a far-reaching bill that would allow people to pick and choose
which laws they want to follow.
I don't know about you, but I believe that no one should be above the
law. I want to make sure our legislators know about the dangers of Rep.
Priola's proposed legislation. That's why I need you to join us at
LGBT Lobby Day.
Lobby Day is our chance to ask our legislators for a YES on civil
unions and a NO on Rep. Priola's dangerous bill. Make sure your voice is
heard -- join us!
If we remain steadfast and vigilant, I believe 2013 will be a historic
year for LGBT Coloradans. I believe we can fight back against attempts
to roll back protections for our community. I believe we can pass civil
unions and the other bills we're advocating for this legislative
session: access to affordable education for undocumented students,
workplace protections that allow people to earn a living free from
discrimination, and expansion of Medicaid to ensure that everyone has
Will you join us at LGBT Lobby Day and help make 2013 a historic year for our community?
I can't wait to see what we can accomplish together this year. And I'm so thankful you're a part of it.
