A Stand Against Hate Crime

"We must stand against crimes that are meant not only to break bones but to break spirits. No one in America should ever be afraid to walk down the street holding the hands of the person they love." ~President Barack Obama, while signing the new Hate Crime Legislation
The new law adds acts of violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people to the list of federal hate crimes.
