Tell Tijeras to repeal their breed-discriminatory ordinance
By now you’ve probably heard the heart-wrenching story of Conor Flanagan and the politicians in Tijeras who are trying to violate federal law and take away his service dog, Brewsky. Even though Brewsky and Conor are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the village still wants to enforce their misguided breed-discriminatory ban on pit bulls. That’s not only morally wrong, it’s illegal.The ADA is clear in saying that federal law supersedes any local municipal breed-discriminatory ordinance, yet the village is insisting on violating this family’s rights. We need your help to stand up for Conor and Brewsky and let Tijeras know that this blatant discrimination will not be tolerated.Please take a moment to contact the leadership in Tijeras and let them know that breed-discriminatory ordinances like this are the wrong way to promote public safety. Let them know that it’s illegal to discriminate against Conor and Brewsky and that their conduct violates the ADA and will lead to costly and unnecessary litigation.Conor and Brewsky are counting on us, so please act now and share this message on Facebook and Twitter with your New Mexico friends and family. Thank you for continuing to help us Save Them All.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am a resident of New Mexico and I urge you to stop threatening to violate the rights of Conor Flanagan and his ADA-protected service animal, Brewsky.
