FIGHT HATE CRIMES: PASS H.R. 1913
Call Members of Congress
Monday, April 27 – Wednesday, April 29

Call your member of Congress toll-free at 866-346-4611 today, Tuesday or Wednesday, April 27-29, and urge support of the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (LLEHCPA) to fight hate crimes and ensure safety and security for all people.

In our increasingly diverse nation, hate crimes are a persistent problem. Although there are laws on the books to deter hate crimes, protect victims, and prosecute crimes, significant improvements can still be made.

The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (H.R. 1913) expands the coverage of existing hate crime laws to include not only victims of crime based on race, color, religion, and national origin, but also bias-motivated crimes based on the victim’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability. H.R. 1913 also provides for federal involvement in prosecuting hate crimes in states where current law or local actions are inadequate.

Hate crimes cut across all of our communities and the LLEHCPA (H.R. 1913) is needed to ensure that all people have the right to be safe and free from physical harm and intimidation. Call your representative toll-free at 866-346-4611, Monday-Wednesday, April 27-April 29, and urge support of H.R. 1913 to fight hate crimes and provide safety and security for all people.

Learn more about the LLEHCPA.


Be sure to tell friends, family and fellow activists to call and urge their representative to support the Hate Crimes Prevention bill (H.R. 1913) and provide safety and security for all people!

Killing Time by Killing Seals


I remember the first time I saw the seal slaughter. Standing on the ocean on a pan of ice, I watched in horror as sealers descended on helpless pups in front of me. I froze, mouthing the word “stop” over and over, to no avail. Clubs raised and fell in a sick rhythm, blood splattering the ice all around. Read More

Fight Hate Now


The Problem

A hate crime occurs when the perpetrator of the crime intentionally selects the victim because of who the victim is. Hate crimes rend the fabric of our society and fragment communities because they target an entire community or group of people, not just the individual victim. However, in most cases, current law prevents the federal government from assisting state and local authorities.
