The city commission will be taking a vote on the "Fairness" Ordinance (this is the second vote in Bowling Green). This ordinance elevates sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) to civil rights status on par with race and religion. This is troublesome as we have seen these ordinances used time and time again to target business owners across the nation.

At the first city commission meeting in Bowling Green, the Fairness Campaign pulled together a group of supporters that far outweighed the presence of the opposition. They used this to argue that the majority of Bowling Green citizens want this ordinance. It's imperative that a significant number from our side shows up to the meetings this coming week on May 6 (Henderson) and May 7 (Bowling Green). Please Join us for the meeting in your area. The Henderson meeting starts at 5:30, but we are asking our supporters to show up at 3:30. The Bowling Green meeting starts at 4:30, but we are asking our supporters to show up at 2:30.

We've prepared a brief video that explains the "Fairness" Ordinance and why it will be harmful to the community. Please share this with your connections. Also, please feel free to share it on social media. We hope to see you in either Henderson or Bowling Green.
