Hate Crimes

Join the final push to pass the Hate Crimes bill! This bill expands the coverage of existing hate crime laws to include crimes not only based on race, color, religion, and national origin, but also those based on the victim’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability. On Wednesday, July 15, please call your Senators toll free at 866-659-9641 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, and urge them to pass the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act. The Senate will likely to vote on this bill on Thursday morning, so please make the call on Wednesday!
