Dear Friends:

The House of Representatives is voting this morning on final passage of the Hate Crimes bill.

If you oppose this bill, which provides special federal protections for homosexuals that most others do not have, I encourage you to call your congressman right now. You can reach your congressman here or by dialing the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
