Jack Phillips isn’t running for any election this year, but he sure has a lot riding on the outcome of one of the most closely watched races in this 2018 midterm election.
You know Jack as the family man and bakery owner from Colorado who was punished by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for declining to create custom cakes that would violate his sincere Christian faith.
Thankfully, just this June, the U.S. Supreme Court decisively ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had violated Jack’s rights—with even liberal justices on the Court ruling in Jack’s favor in the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision. This hasn’t stopped the Commission from going after Jack again—this time for declining to create a cake celebrating a person’s “gender transition.”
While Jack is back in court defending his faith, Colorado voters have a decision to make that will impact Jack, other people of faith in Colorado, and ultimately the entire country. The decision in the Colorado Governor’s race is one of the key races in the country this November.
One of the candidates running for Colorado Governor is Jared Polis, an LGBT activist and liberal congressman who supports the Commission’s actions in targeting Jack for his faith. In fact, Polis has made supporting the Commission one of his key election platforms. And worse yet, as governor, Polis would have the power to appoint even more radical members to the Commission.
This means that things could get even worse for Jack and other people of faith in Colorado.
The problem is—most voters in Colorado don’t know that Polis supports how the Commission targeted Jack, or that other states have already looked at the Colorado Commission as an example in how to target their own people of faith!
We need your help today!
We are working to reach as many voters as possible with this video, revealing how Polis will make things worse for Jack and other people of faith.

Jack Phillips isn’t running for governor. But he has a lot riding on the outcome.
That’s because one candidate, Jared Polis, strongly supports the actions of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission in targeting Jack for his beliefs.
As you probably know, Jack Phillips is a small business owner from Lakewood, where he and his wife own Masterpiece Cakeshop.
In 2013, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission punished Jack for his faith. Jack had politely declined to create a custom wedding cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage—though he offered to sell the men anything else in the shop or create a cake for a different occasion. This is because Jack serves all people, but he can’t use his artistic talent to celebrate all viewpoints.
Thankfully, the Supreme Court ruled overwhelmingly in Jack’s favor. Yet that didn’t stop the Colorado Civil Rights Commission from going after Jack again. In a clearly orchestrated attack, the Commission is now seeking to punish Jack for declining to create a cake to celebrate a “gender transition.”
But things could get worse for Jack — and all believers in Colorado – if Jared Polis is elected governor.
The governor appoints the members of the Civil Rights Commission, and whoever is the next governor will make several appointments early next year. Polis, a wealthy LGBT activist, has made very clear that he supports the Commission’s actions against Phillips.
Yet many Colorado voters are unaware of this. That’s why Family Policy Alliance created this video. We’re getting it out to tens of thousands of specific Colorado voters – people who share our values but tend not to vote in non-presidential elections.
But we need your help to do that. Here’s what you can do:
- Remember this as you vote. Walker Stapleton strongly opposes the Commission’s actions against Phillips. Jared Polis supports forcing Jack to violate his faith.
- Share this video on Facebook to make sure your own network has this information.
- Donate to help us reach more Colorado voters. Every $20 you give will reach at least 500 strategically selected Colorado voters.
Now is the time. This is where we truly stand with Jack – and for faith.
