I’ve been getting some emails from the Human Rights Campaign, especially in terms of the proposed Hate Crimes legislation. I’m going to pass along their most recent email and ask that everyone take a minute to contact their prospective senator about the vote:
Did you know that one in six hate crimes are motivated by the
victim’s sexual orientation, and yet today’s federal laws don’t
include any protections for these Americans? What’s even more
outrageous is that the radical right is running an all-out
campaign to stop Congress from expanding hate crimes laws to
include sexual orientation and gender identity – something three
out of four Americans support.
The Human Rights Campaign is asking all of us to contact our
Senators and urge them to pass this important legislation!
I’ve sent off a thank you note to Nancy Pelosi and just sent off an email to Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Please find out who your senators are and contact them about this important legislation.
