    As one of only 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 an effort to make that happen, 

    Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Charleston, Alliance For Full Acceptance, Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Charleston Hispanic Association, Lowcountry Coalition Against Hate, the ADL - Anti-Defamation League, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Charleston Jewish Federation, Columbia Jewish Federation and others have banded together behind a position statement and an official campaign called Stamp Out Hate South Carolina.

    Please go to our position statement and sign your name (or your organization/business) in support of this effort. To sign individually, scroll to the bottom of the page.

    Visit https://stampouthate.sc for more information.

    SAVE LIVES.  VOTE SAFELY.  EMAIL YOUR STATE REPS NOW!

    The South Carolina Election Board has proposed Vote by Mail for All so the election can be conducted "safely and securely."  Time is short to get this done.  So write now to your elected officials (see below) to demand they adopt the Board’s proposals:

    • All voters able to vote absentee.
    • Absentee ballots don't have to be witnessed.
    • Curbside voting at designated locations instead of at every polling place.
    • Election officials provided more time to process absentee ballots or extend the date in which counties must certify the election results.          

    Rep. Bill Taylor, R-Aiken, has said "the best approach to maximizing opportunities to vote in the general election are being discussed and evaluated by legislators on a daily basis and will be resolved in September when we return to session."

    In these - or your own words - say:

    I am your constituent.   I live in [Town].   I’m writing to urge you to take action to keep voters safe.

    You must adopt the state Board of Election’s recommendations to conduct a safe and secure election.

    Allow all voters to use absentee ballots.  Allow curbside voting.  Allow more time to process votes.

    You must protect us.  Protect our right to vote.  Save lives.  

    Address your letter to the Governor to

    The Honorable Henry McMaster
    State House
    1100 Gervais Street
    Columbia, SC 29201

    You can find your representative's home address by going to scstatehouse.gov
