HB 426 Hate Crimes legislation: Georgia is one of only five states without a hate crimes law. The events of recent weeks highlight the danger of allowing violence motivated by hate to go unpunished. Presbyterians for a Better Georgia encourages you to support passage of the Hate Crimes legislation this session by contacting state leadership and your State senator.

Every call from a constituent makes a difference.

Background: HB 426 was introduced by former prosecutor and Republican legislator from Dacula, Rep. Chuck Efstration. It passed the Georgia House in 2019 with a bipartisan vote. However, there has been no action in the State Senate Judiciary Committee in 2020. The legislature is to resume its suspended session on June 11. If you support this legislation this is the time to reach out.

Call or email today these legislators and state leaders:
Gov. Brian Kemp (404) 656-1776 or gov.georgia.gov/contact-us/constituent-services ; Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (404) 656-5030 or ltgov.georgia.gov/constituent-services; Judiciary Chair Sen. Jesse Stone (404) 463-1314 or email jesse.stone@senate.ga.gov. Your State Senator: Find your State Senator here and how to contact them: www.openstates.org

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
