Petition Opposing Hate Crimes – Sign-Online by MAY 11th!


As you all know on Thursday the U.S. House passed H.R. 1592 – the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 --  by a vote of 237 to 180.  Click here to see how your Congressman voted.  


The hate crimes bill now goes to the U.S. Senate.  Both Senator Arlen Specter and Senator Bob Casey, Jr. have signed on as co-sponsors to the Senate version of the bill – S 1105.    They need to hear from concerned Pennsylvanians asking them to vote ‘No’ on S 1105!


Click here for reasons we oppose such legislation. 


On our website we have a petition to Senators Specter and Casey asking them to vote “No” on the hate crimes bill.  We are also asking President Bush to veto the bill, if it reaches his desk.  The AFA of PA has also put a petition up on our website – but you only have a couple days to gather names as we need it back by MAY 11th


We are not sure just when the Senate will vote, but it will be very soon.  There’s a quick turn around on this petition because of that uncertainty.




1.)  Sign our online petition to Senators Specter and Casey and President Bush.  Click here.    


2.)  Please forward this alert to other concerned Pennsylvanians.


3.)  Don’t forget you can now listen to Diane Gramley’s weekly radio program ‘American Family Focus on PA Issues’ on our website.  Click here


4.) If this alert is being forwarded to you by a friend, please feel free to sign up by clicking here.   Please indicate in which county you live.


5.)  Please consider supporting the ongoing work of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania.  Make an online donation.
