I wanted to forward this request from Loretta Ross at SisterSong to you. Cynthia Tucker of the AJC blogged about the GA Senate bill and its criminalization of abortion providers who offer services to African American women, and unfortunately have been receiving hate messages in the comment boxes. She's asking for those in the reproductive justice movement to write letters to the editor in response to the hate mail. Below is the link to the blog post. I'm sending a letter. I hope you will too. Please pass around and send letters to support Cynthia and let our voices be heard!

We need your help writing letters to the editor as below. Cynthia Tucker has written an important editorial in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and all she has received in response is hate mail. Please write ASAP! Thanks!
Serena, There are lots of racist comments on my blog today. ( I wrote about SB529) It would be great if you could round up a few people to comment on it to add more enlightened thoughts:
