Thanks to each person who made phone calls on H.B. 630, the bill which seeks to change the Georgia non-discrimination code for public employees to include civil right status and special protections for “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
The bill was heard in Subcommittee I of the House Judiciary Committee today and the committee voted 3-2 to table the bill. Click here to watch State Director Tanya Ditty’s testimony in opposition to the bill. A special thanks to CWA state leader, Terri Green for recording and posting the testimony.
