Call to Action
Keep the Pressure on Contact your State Legislator
Friends,
This a reminder that we can’t let our guard down, please continue to write, email, and call the House Rules Committee members and your State Legislators.
We have to keep the pressure on, write, call and email the Legislators on the House Rules Committee. Call your local Representative and have them speak to some of the members of the Rule Committee. It has a HUGE effect.
One good Bill:
House Bill 220, makes (2) Sons of Confederate Veterans Members and (2) Civil War Commission Members mandatory Board Members of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association.
The justification of SCV members being Board members is members of the SCV and the UCV and UDC were the original founders of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association. Also, the Sons of Confederate Veterans are the guardians of Confederate Monuments and need to be on the Board.
Three BAD Bills:
House Bill 237, which removes all law protections for Confederate monuments and monuments of individuals that had owned slaves.
Removes the designation of Stone Mountain Memorial Park as a memorial to the Confederacy.
House Bill 238, makes it legal for cities and counties to remove Confederate monuments with no penalties or ramifications what so ever. Nor does the monument have to be placed in a location of similar prominence if moved.
House Bill 277, Removes the designation of Stone Mountain Memorial Park as a memorial to the Confederacy. Makes it legal for cities and counties to remove Confederate monuments with no penalties
ALL FOUR HOUSE BILLS ARE CURRENTLY IN THE HOUSE RULES COMMITTEE.
Below is the contact information of all the Republican House Rules Committee members who hold the majority in the Rules committee.
WHAT TO DO:
  • Send a handwritten letter to these Rules Committee members and your Legislator asking them to Support House Bill 220 and to Vote Against House Bills 237, 238 & 277.
  • Send them an email and call their office asking them to Support House Bill 220 and to Vote Against House Bills 237, 238 & 277.
  • Contact your local Representative and ask them to speak to members of the Rules committee.
Below is a sample letter/e-mail:
Dear Representative  __________:
I respectfully request you to support House Bill 220 that makes SCV members ex officio members of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association. The SCV was the original founders of the Association and are the guardians needed to protect Stone Mountain’s purpose as a memorial to the Confederacy.
I respectfully request you to VOTE AGAINST House Bills 237, 238, and 277 that calls for the removal of all Confederate monuments and “slave owners” monuments. It also removes the designation of Stone Mountain as a memorial to the Confederacy.
My family feels, it is our duty to preserve America’s and Georgia’s history and the memorials that honor Georgia’s Veterans.
We appreciate your service and consideration.
Sincerely,
(Signed by you and other family members)
