#159CalltoAction: Email Opposition to SR 587 (English as Official Language)

This discriminatory anti-immigrant and anti-refugee bill made it onto the Senate Rules Committee agenda.  It still has to be voted on one more time in the Senate Rules Committee to make it to the floor of the State Senate.  We need to urge them to HOLD this bill and NOT bring it to the Senate Floor for a vote. #159CalltoAction #159Immigration

    Members of the Senate Rules Committee,

    I am disappointed in the passage of Senate Resolution 587 in last week's committee meeting and thank those of you who voted against its passage.
    Please ensure that it is not added back to future committee agendas. I welcome all newcomers, including refugees and immigrants, to Georgia and to my community and expect our state government to reflect those same ideals.
    Thank You,
    Your Name
    123 Main Street
    Atlanta, GA 31234

    (Remember to change Your Name and address to your name.)
