Matthew Shepard Act To Be Voted On Soon, Take Action Now To Help Pass It

Here is a message we are instructed to hand out to as many friends and family as possible from HRC. We need you to send a very urgent and strong message to congress and watch this video. Here is the message. Also copy and paste this message and send it to whoever you can.


Did you know that hate crimes against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are on the rise?I just watched a really powerful video that I think you should see – Judy Shepard's story of losing her son to hate violence and fighting for a federal hate crimes bill to give LGBT Americans the protections they need and deserve and to honor his memory. I hope you'll watch it and then send a message to your lawmakers to pass that bill, which is up for a vote in the coming days.http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/hate_crimes_video

Congress is taking action on the bill now – but right-wing lawmakers are trying to derail it. There's no time to waste. We can't let the forces of discrimination prevail on this one.Judy Shepard speaks with strength and eloquence. I hope her words will move you to send a strong message to your representative. Click the link to watch and then take action.http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/hate_crimes_video

Thank you.
