The citizens of Jacksonville are fighting their own city council to stop them from trying to adopt a dangerous sexual orientation and gender identity ordinance.  Despite claims of “new compromise language,” the Jacksonville Human Rights Ordinance (HRO) 2017-15, puts women’s privacy, safety and dignity at risk when they use showers, locker rooms, spas, and bathrooms by allowing men to also use the same intimate facility.  Furthermore, it seeks to punish businesses and Christian ministries who simply wish to live, work and serve their community in accordance with the dictates of their faith without interference by the government.  Despite deceptive word changes, it’s still the same dangerous anti-liberty ordinance which has been defeated twice before.  A one-page analysis of what the deceptive proposal does can be found here.

What happens in Jacksonville does not stay in Jacksonville.  Like a transmittable virus, the momentum of this bad bill passing could mean that your town is next.  Please contact the Jacksonville City Council members via email and phone today and tell them to “Vote NO on HRO.”
