This GA bill would make Martin Luther King, Jr. ashamed

To be delivered to The Georgia State House, The Georgia State Senate, and Governor Nathan Deal

Petition Statement

We urge all Georgia lawmakers to oppose SB 469. This bill restricts the free speech rights of Georgians.

It burdens small businesses by forcing them to issue additional notices to their employees, and it puts extra strain on our already-stretched public safety forces. We need lawmakers to focus on real solutions to our jobs crisis, not push bills that take away our basic free speech rights. Again, please vote NO on SB 469.
There are currently 9,766 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Extreme lawmakers in the Georgia legislature are pushing a bill designed to intimidate those who would engage in protest activities, such as picketing or sit-ins.

This is an effort to silence protesters who are standing up for economic justice.

My father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., died fighting for economic justice. Before his assassination in 1968, one of the ways he supported striking sanitation workers in Memphis was joining them on the picket line.

It’s shocking to me that, 44 years after my father’s death, extreme Georgia legislators are trying to silence today’s peaceful protesters. My father would not back down from this bill and we cannot either.
