Vaccine mandates and the tools to implement them are coming fast and furious at us!
On Wednesday, Congress voted to approve funding for a federal vaccine database to collect patient-specific information. In addition to Arizona Democrats, representatives that voted for this funding include Republicans Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert.
Today, the City of Phoenix announced a vote by the City Council on a vaccine mandate for all employees in conjunction with Biden's Federal Contractor mandate, even though all Federal mandates have been put on hold with the courts.
City employees are not going to roll over on this and they are taking a stand for medical freedom! Nearly 1,000 employees including police, firefighters, streets, water, and trash workers have organized for a day of action starting at the Arizona Capitol with a meeting with the Legislature and THEY NEED YOUR HELP!
Public safety in our City is in crisis. We don't even have enough officers to respond to 911 calls and our fire department is close to being in the same position. With this mandate, we are at risk of losing 60-80% of public safety workers and 30% of infrastructure employees.
The other cities and counties in Arizona are just waiting for Phoenix to go through with it before they act on a mandate too! That's why firefighters from all over the state are joining this event to stand against the mandate for all employees in Arizona and across the nation!
We must put public safety + individual liberty first in Arizona!
This is a call to action for anyone facing mandates at their employers to have a chance for their voice to be heard! This is a call to action for every freedom-loving Arizonan to join us in support of these employees at risk for termination.... because it's not if a mandate is headed to your doorstep at this point, but when!
It's time for the public to join with our public officials for a Statewide Call to Action!
At 12 pm we are asking the public statewide to join us at the Capitol for a very important press conference and announcement to begin at 12:30 pm. This will be followed by a rally and a march from the Arizona Capitol to Phoenix City Hall. The details of the event are in the RSVP link below.
