|2/23: Urge Congress to Support Hate Crimes Prevention Act
Released 24 February 2007  By Asian American Justice Center (AAJC)
2/23: Urge Congress to Support Hate Crimes Prevention Act
Asian American Justice Center (AAJC)
The Asian American Justice Center (AAJC) urges you to call upon your Representative to support the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (LLEHCPA). This legislation brings much needed uniformity to federal hate crime laws and reflects the growing support for stronger hate crime legislation on the state level.
State and federal governments should not tolerate any form of bias-motivated violence.
The LLRHCPA strengthens the ability of the federal, state, and local governments to investigate and prosecute hate crimes based on race, ethnic background, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability. The bill helps state and local anti-bias efforts by enabling the Justice Department to assist them in the investigation and prosecution of all hate crimes, not just those that prevent the victim from exercising a federally protected right.
Every year, Asian Americans find themselves the victim of a hate crime. Over the years, AAJC has documented hundreds upon hundreds of bias-motivated crimes. It is important to our communities that the federal government be able to address cases that state and local authorities either cannot or will not investigate or prosecute properly. All hate crimes need to be taken seriously because they have a crippling effect on not only the victim, but on whole communities.

to tell your Representative to become an original cosponsor of the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act that will be introduced in the House.
The more cosponsors the bill has, the better the chance of passing this landmark legislation and putting an end to hate crimes in America.
