See a video and form letter at the Human Rights Campaign.

copy this sample text into an email:

Hi,

You've got to watch this video. Thousands of people are attacked every year because of their sexual orientation, and there's still no federal hate crimes law to protect them. This video is the most powerful statement I've seen on hate crimes, and I couldn't help but pass it on. I think you'll see why.

There's a bill in the Senate right now that would address this heartbreaking problem, and we only have a few weeks until the vote. It would mean a lot to me if you could take a minute to watch the video and write your Senators, and then pass this along to five friends. I really believe none of us can sit this one out. Just go to:

Warmly,

Joe Solmonese

I'm so glad this issue is being addressed. Do you know that the emails are running 5 to 1 against this legislation?

Except see passing hate crime laws just says that there IS a difference between blacks and whites, homos and non homos. If I were to go out right now and kill someone would that not be from hate for that person?
