Feds4MedFreedom

A national grassroots coalition, Feds 4 Medical Freedom, has been formed to respond to rigid and inflexible mandates imposed on public servants and government contractors.
Thousands of these dedicated public employees have answered the call of duty and served throughout the pandemic, no matter the risk. They believe that the government should not fire workers because of their health conditions or medically-informed health care decisions.
Now is not the time to abandon well-established laws regarding workplace discrimination, informed consent to use unlicensed vaccines, and individualized assessments by employers.
Members of the Federal community work every day to ensure the nation’s laws are applied fairly to all citizens. Now, they are fighting the government to ensure the law is applied fairly to all federal workers.
