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.

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.
