(BLOOMINGTON) - More than two dozen protesters of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act circled the Monroe County Courthouse on Saturday afternoon with posters and chanting - "Stop the legalization of discrimination."

The RFRA is law that critics say will allow business to discriminate against anyone including gays and lesbians and will give legal protections to those businesses to continue to do so if they have a religious pretext they claim to follow.

Emily Jones, an IU sophomore at the Jacobs School of Music, was one of two people largely responsible for organizing the protest which took place the same day of the Indianapolis protest.

The protest began at Rachel's Cafe and went to the courthouse.
