Sign the Petition: Ban the "Panic" Defense

The NJ Senate will consider legislation to ban the gay and trans “panic” defense!

The “panic” defense is a legal strategy which asks a jury to find that a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity is to blame for the defendant’s violent reaction — including murder — and it’s still legal in New Jersey to do so.

Sign our petition now and tell lawmakers to ban the gay and trans “panic” defense, and we'll hand deliver it!
