Missouri. The country is watching. Following the the longest filibuster in Missouri’s history at 40 hours, thanks to eight passionate Missouri Democrats, the Missouri Senate has voted to advance SJR 39 to the House. We need to stop SJR39 from making it to the ballot for a public vote.
Will you join us, ACLU of Missouri, and Freedom for All Americans in urging Speaker Richardson to take a stand against anti-LGBT #SJR39?
Need more proof the country is watching. Just check out who has talked about the negative impacts of SJR 39 the past few days on Twitter.
I’m happy to loan a certain pair of sneakers for the cause #NotInMyState #SJR39 https://t.co/JyncGtPBJc

Should the intolerance sought to be codified in #SJR39 make it to the ballot, the state’s voters should reject it. #fgs

In Missouri you can be fired for being gay. Instead of working to right that wrong, the legislature is making discrimination legal. #SJR39

Standing up for our LGBTQ sisters and brothers is the duty of all elected officials. This should make us all proud. https://t.co/r4Rw5xInA8

I couldn’t be prouder of Mo Dem Senators’ 27 hours & counting filibuster of bill that discriminates against folks based on who they love.
