Sign Your Note of Encouragement for Melissa Klein Today

Sweet Justice for SweetCakes

For Melissa Klein, running her family bakery, SweetCakes by Melissa, was much more than just a business. It was her passion, her artistic expression, a second home—and a legacy to pass on to her children.

It was a dream come true. Until the State of Oregon came along and took it all away, just because Melissa politely declined to create a custom same-sex wedding cake. She was forced to close her family business, penalized $135,000, and has even endured graphic death threats—all for simply standing by her religious beliefs as she runs her business.

But thankfully, despite this shocking barrage of hostility, there is hope.

The U.S. Supreme Court stepped in last year with a statement rebuking Oregon’s decision, pointing out that award-winning cake artist Melissa Klein deserves the same protection from religious discrimination that was afforded to Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in his recent Supreme Court victory.

Now, Oregon is formally reconsidering their decision. Will they openly defy the U.S. Supreme Court and the Constitutional rights of every American? You can be sure we’ll take the case right back to the Supreme Court if they do.

But even with these encouraging steps in the right direction, the Kleins journey has been a long and difficult one — and nobody should ever have to go through religious persecution alone.

Please take a moment to write a message of encouragement for Melissa and her family today. We need to let this kind-hearted, hardworking mother of 5 know that her fellow Americans have her back in this fight.

Please fill out your letter of support below to tell Melissa and her family: “I stand with you in your decision to run your business according to your faith.”
