Call Script: My name is _______, and I am a member of the National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section. I am calling today to ask you to support S3067, a bill that will strengthen and improve our state’s hate crimes framework and provide additional protections for victims of swatting and cyber-harassment.

Online hate ruins lives by stoking fear, silencing voices and causing harm to people’s physical and professional safety. An ADL survey of Americans found that 41 percent of American adults surveyed reported experiencing online harassment. These offenses have a serious and lasting effect on victims and their families. Please support S3067.
