Unity Rally Against Religious Freedom Executive Order
The President’s Next Executive Order to Target LGBTQ Communities
Arcadia, CA – February 2, 2017 – Have you heard? The next Executive Order (to be announced imminently) is slated to focus on the anti-LGBTQ First Amendment Defense Act. The Order could permit federal employees to use their personal faith as a justification to discriminate against anyone that does not live in accordance with their belief system. Equality California, the LA LGBT Center among others are planning a rally in Downtown LA.
If you are seeking a local alternative to the Downtown LA rally, The San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center and Pasadena PFLAG are hosting a local Protest Rally in the SGV (either in Pasadena or West Covina) at 6pm the night of the announcement.
We will send out an email and social media blasts with more details, once the Executive Order is signed.
The San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center works to foster a more inclusive SGV for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. One of our core values is our diversity as Americans and we stand against the President’s proposed Executive Order.
We look forward to seeing you at 6pm the night of the announcement. More details to come.
