Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today urged her colleagues to accept
hate crimes provisions that are included in the Defense Authorization bill.
“We must continue to fight for justice, hope, and freedom by ensuring that
hate crimes prevention provisions are enacted into law. That would be a
true and fitting memorial to James Byrd, Matthew Shepard, Waqar Hasan, Gwen
Araujo and so many others who have died because of ignorance and
intolerance,” Pelosi said.
