A call to action to defend the likes of homeless persons just as if they were a normal average working citizen. The hate crimes against homeless action is to add homeless persons as a protected class to hate crime statistics and enforcement acts.

From 1999-2007, there have been 774 documented acts of violence committed against homeless individuals in the United States.

On May 7, 2009 Maryland became the first state to introduce Hate Crimes against the Homeless as an official state law. Lets keep that drive alive.

Reference agencies for Hate Crime Against the Homeless:
The National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH), the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty (NLCHP), the Homeless Persons Representation Project (HPRP).
