FASNY members are sadly aware that too many brave men and women in uniform have lost their lives, were injured or targeted simply because of their jobs as protectors of the community. It is society’s duty to ensure the protection of our Community Heroes, just as they risk their lives every day to ensure ours. This Community Heroes Protection Act is a stepping stone in deterring those crimes, and your display of support is needed at this time.
Senator Fred Akshar with Senators Martin Golden and Patrick Gallivan invite uniformed first responders to announce the Community Heroes Protection Act (S1114), which would designate crimes that specifically target police, firefighters and other emergency service workers punishable as hate crimes.
