Unfortunately HB37, changing current Georgia law to penalize private postsecondary institutions who provide refuge to immigrants by establishing themselves as sanctuary campuses, passed a Senate Floor vote yesterday meaning it is now on its way to the Governor for his signature. Before we reach out to the Governor asking him to veto it (more to come in the future on that) please take a moment today to let your Senator know you are thankful for their “Nay” vote or disappointed in their “Yea” vote.

Now that your Senator is on record please go here to see how they voted.

If they voted “Yea” send your Senator the following email:

Senator,

I was disappointed to see your “Yea” vote in favor of HB37. 

HB37 further exacerbates the xenophobic rhetoric making its way through our state and country.  I welcome all newcomers, including refugees and immigrants, to Georgia and to our community and expect the state legislature to reflect those same ideals.

Thank You,
