Obama signs hate crimes bill into law - CNN.com

On this day in 2009, Obama signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law. The measure expands the 1969 US Federal Hate Crime Law to include crimes motivated by a victims actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. Matthew Shepard was tortured and murdered near Laramie, Wyoming on October 7, 1998 because of his sexual orientation. https://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/10/28/hate.crimes/

President Obama on Wednesday signed a law that makes it a federal crime to assault an individual because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity.

Because of the murder of Matthew Shepard we now have laws on the books to help protect us against hate crimes simply because of who we love, what god we believe in, or the color of our skin.

Is the festival in October canceled?
How can I volunteer?
Are there tickets still available for Bubby and Sissy’s event today?
It's about time Alton joins the test of the world with a pride festival
This is so great! I'm excited to support you.
I wish I could LOVE this page instead of just "like" it. Makes me so happy to see a pride fest in Alton happening!
