(KWWL) -

Monica Vernon will hold an anti-discrimination rally after yesterday's House Oversight Committee hearing and in response to Congressman Blum's support of the First Amendment Defense Act.

"Congressman Blum's support for such a blatantly discriminatory bill continues to be disappointing," said Monica Vernon. "Families across northeast Iowa deserve a representative who is focused on building an economy that works for everyone and creating good paying jobs right here at home - not some divisive, out-of-touch Tea Party agenda filled with discrimination. That's unacceptable and hardworking Iowans deserve so much better." 

Vernon's campaign for Congress will be holding the rally outside of Congressman Blum's office in Cedar Rapids on Thursday, July 14 at 12:15 PM.

Congressman Blum's office is located at 310 3rd St SE in Cedar Rapids.
