URGENT: Vote on anti-LGBTQ bill happening in less than 24 hours

By Sheena Kadi, Deputy Director, One Colorado

By Take action NOW and tell the committee to VOTE NO on House Bill 1140 and make sure discrimination against LGBTQ Coloradans doesn't become legal in Colorado.

You may have seen that Representative Stephen Humphrey, R-Greeley has introduced one of the most mean-spirited, blatantly anti-LGBTQ bills we've seen in the Colorado State Legislature in years.

Whether it's in the areas of adoption and foster care, health care, housing, marriage, employment, or public spaces, House Bill 1140 is designed to roll back protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Coloradans and their families in nearly every facet of our lives.

Send an email and tweet to tell the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee how dangerous House Bill 1140 is.

This proposal goes as far, if not farther, than the infamous Amendment 2, which resulted in Colorado getting a reputation as the "Hate State." We don't need to turn back the clock on all the progress we've made. Whether it's obtaining a marriage license, adopting or fostering a child, working at a job, or accessing healthcare, House Bill 1140 will create a license to discriminate against LGBTQ Coloradans for practically any reason.

Make your voice heard TODAY and tell the committee to VOTE NO.
