TAKE ACTION NOW!

If you would like to support the Advocacy for Hate Crime Legislation in Georgia, this page has email addresses and brief descriptions of the officeholder’s position, and any “special” instructions.  If time is a factor, writing one letter and copying and pasting all the addressees would be OK.

The Senate Judiciary Committee must vote this legislation out of committee first. So contact all of them that you are able.
