Time Sensitive Call to Action: Tell Your Representatives to Co-Sign H.Res.257
As the recent events in Charlottesville, VA, and the mosque bombing in Minnesota demonstrate, we must act now to protect the rights of all citizens and preserve the American principles of justice and equality.
Congress needs to act against hate crimes and incidents that target communities of faith and color, especially Muslim Americans.

Now is the time to call upon your members in the House of Representatives to take a clear stance against hate crimes.

H.Res.257 is a bipartisan House resolution that condemns hate crimes and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement of violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States and calls for stronger reporting and analysis of hate crimes and incidents. It was introduced by Rep. Comstock (R-VA-10) and has gathered 22 co-signers. The senate version of the resolution (S.118), introduced by Sen. Harris (D-CA), passed unanimously. 

TIP: Tell your Congressional representative how hate crimes impact you and your community and encourage them to support and protect Muslims through such resolutions. Personal stories can truly influence decision maker.
