The officers having conferred, the quick decision council is agreed to the following resolution.
Whereas, within hours of taking the oath of office, President Biden signed Executive Order #13988, ostensibly for the purpose of “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation”; and
Whereas, as anticipated by recent amendments to the state party platform, irresponsible policy makers failed “to find nuanced approaches which will protect (trans-identified individuals) without gutting from (existing law) the gains that women have made for the protection of the sex-based rights of women under the law”; and
Whereas, on Thursday, February 25th, Democrats in the the U.S. House of Representatives passed on a 224-206 vote, without any hearings, markup or the consideration of any amendments, the so-called Equality Act, which similarly discarded caution, nuance and the multiple concerns being raised by women for the protection of the sex-based rights won by a century and a half of women’s organizing; and
Whereas, multiple women’s organizations have endorsed a series of events organized as “Women Picket DC”, and are asking supporters to join them in Washington D.C. for International Women’s Day, March 8th and events across the weekend, and have published a call for participation and endorsements at: https://womenpicketdc.org/.
Resolved, that the Quick Decision Council on behalf of the Georgia Green Party, here endorses the Women Picket DC action and encourages Greens in Georgia and elsewhere to participate in these events.
