Thank President Obama for Signing Hate Crimes Legislation & remind him to pass the Equal Rights Amendment


Thank President Obama for Signing Hate Crimes Legislation and then remind him that it is now time to pass the Equal Rights Amendment so that women may be included in the US Constitution.


Join NOW-NYS in Thanking President Obama






Federal Hate Crimes Legislation Signed into Law

Thank President Obama
for
Signing Landmark Hate Crimes Legislation.

NOW-NYS  Applauds Passage of Landmark Hate Crimes Legislation
In a campaign promise fulfilled, President Obama signed the first significant
pro-lesbian, pro-woman, pro-disability rights legislation today. The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act expands the 1969
federal hate crimes law to include sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disability.
 
Now let's insist that he get the Equal Rights Amendment passed so that all women in the United States will be represented in the US Constitution.
