Call Congress today about the proposed hate crimes law

By Diane Silver

The far right is ramping up it's attack on proposed legislation giving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered citizens hate crime protection. That's the same protection that religious groups enjoy.

The attacks being mounted today are absurd and misrepresent the bill.

The U.S. House is supposed to vote on this tomorrow. Contact your representative today. We should particularly focus our efforts on Kansas Democrats Dennis Moore and Nancy Boyda.

Here is the Human Right Campaign's video, explaining the proposed bill and responding to the far right's attacks.
