Call to action from Fair Wisconsin: Oppose SCOTUS Nominee Gorsuch

MADISON, Wisc. — Neil Gorsuch has an extremely troubling record on LGBTQ equality, and you can take action today by sending a message to your Senators asking them to block his confirmation.

He sided with Hobby Lobby in the Supreme Court ruling that not only gave corporations the right to decide, based on employers’ religious beliefs, whether women have access to affordable birth control but also opened the door for other types of harmful discrimination.

He was enthusiastically endorsed by anti-LGBTQ activists including the co-founder of the National Organization on Marriage, the leaders of the Alliance Defending Freedom which launches anti-LGBTQ lawsuits, and Kelly Shackelford, president of Texas-based anti-LGBTQ group First Liberty.

Religious freedom is a core American value that we all cherish, and it is already protected by the United States and Wisconsin constitutions.  Attempts to give a license to discriminate through religious exemptions are contrary to the notion that we should treat others the way we wish to be treated and scores of faith leaders have spoken out against such policies, across the country.

Click here to send a message to Senators Baldwin and Johnson that Supreme Court justices should be committed to upholding America’s promise of fairness and freedom for all.
