Washington, D.C. – Tuesday evening, Houston voters overwhelmingly rejected the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, or HERO. The rejection of this ordinance protects the religious freedom of business owners and will keep people born as men from being allowed to enter women’s restrooms and vice versa. Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say:

“Social liberals should be concerned after last night’s election results. I see harbingers for 2016. Citizen’s voices are heard at the polls, and  I believe they will be heard again clearly next November.

“I would like to extend my congratulations to CWALAC’s Texas State Director, Ann Hettinger, Area Director Beverly Roberts, and area members who were influential in the grassroots movement to oppose this ordinance. Our hardworking and dedicated women will continue to fight for our religious liberties and common sense.
