Georgia Hate Crimes Bill Moves Forward!

Georgia is one of the four states in the country with no hate crime laws. The Georgia Coalition for Safe Communities (GCSC) applauds state legislators for approving HB 426, a bipartisan hate crimes law that holds individuals and groups accountable for crimes motivated by bigotry and hatred.

FACT:
We have more gun violence

Gun-related deaths in Georgia are 25 percent higher than the national average.
