State Senator Ferlo and Hate Crimes Legislation


State Senator Jim Ferlo (D-38) has told his colleagues that passage of a hate crimes bill should be their top priority this term. Forget the out-of-control government spending, forget the over $1billion budget deficit, lets add ‘actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity’ to the PA hate crimes law.  Senator Ferlo made this announcement even before they were sworn in yesterday!


Click here to read our news release for more details.  




1.)If you think passage of such a law is not a good idea, please contact your State Senator and State Representative and ask them to oppose any hate crimes bill that may be introduced this session.  These type laws create unequal protection and make one victim more important than another.  Please call the district office nearest you and e-mail your elected officials.  Click here and key in your zip code in the upper right hand corner for contact information. 


2.)  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


3.)  Feel free to forward this alert to other concerned Pennsylvanians.  If this alert is being forwarded to you by a friend, please feel free to sign up by clicking here.  


4.)  Please consider supporting the ongoing work of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania.  Make a tax deductible online donation.
