To testify against the introduction of SB 221, a bill that creates a license to discriminate.
“People of faith have every right to preach and debate matters of theology and religious practice, and the ACLU of Georgia will be the first to defend that right. But the government has no right to use someone else’s religious views to harm LGBT people or anyone of any faith,” stated Sean J. Young, Legal Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “The ACLU of Georgia stands for inclusion, and SB 221 would create a license to discriminate.”
