As one of three states in the US with no law specifically protecting citizens targeted by hate crime, it is long past time that South Carolina moves forward with the passage of hate crime legislation.
In the interest of making that happen, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Charleston, Alliance for Full Acceptance, Mother Emanuel AME Church, Charleston Hispanic Association, Lowcountry Coalition Against Hate, the Anti-Defamation League, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Columbia Jewish Federation, Charleston Jewish Federation and others have banded together behind a position statement and an official campaign called Stamp Out Hate South Carolina.
Our position statement, the list of signers, the link to add your organization to the list, and information on how to support our campaign are available on our coalition’s website: www.stampouthate.sc.
