Keep Hate Crimes Legislation Alive

About SB 439

Even though Senate Bill 439 has died in the Indiana General Assembly this year, there is still time this session for our state legislators to move forward with a hate crimes law for Indiana. What can we as Women4Change Indiana do? Contact your State Representative and State Senator and urge that he/she advocate for hate crimes legislation to be addressed this year. 

Sample Call Script

"Hate crimes are happening in Indiana on an almost weekly basis. I am aware that Indiana remains one of five states in the nation without a hate crimes statute. I am deeply disappointed that SB 439 died in the House and the Senate, but there is still time to revive language before the end of this session. Please make a hate crimes law a priority in the final weeks of the session and urge your leadership to do so as well. Indiana cannot wait any longer."
