You can copy and paste the following, a quote from our sisters and brothers in Christ, of the African Descent Lutheran Association, taken from Bishop Strickland’s letter, into the body of all of the emails. Add any pertinent information about how this affects you and your family, and, if you are a Georgia resident, be sure and make that known, (and you can use this link to find your Georgia State Representative and your State Senator and copy and paste their emails into the letter as well http://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/) :
I am in agreement with The African Descent Lutheran Association, Southeastern chapter (ADLA), which is calling for “immediate action to convene the appropriate oversight of the Department of Justice. We also call for the passage of HB 426 so that Georgians may be protected by a Hate Crime Statute enforceable by state and local law enforcement and upheld in the state and local courts.”
Governor Kemp’s email system requires filling out a short “fill-in-the-blank” online form, as opposed to traditional email.
