Since the signing of the Matthew Sheppard and James E. Byrd Act, Elke Kennedy and her husband have been asked to help the FBI with the roll out training in the state of SC during a first meeting in Columbia, SC last year. Since then, Sean’s Last wish attended and has been part of 5 sessions so far . Tuesdays meeting featured US Attorney General Bill Nettles who was speaking about what the new law means and answered questions in a Q and A session.
For the last 3 1/2 years, Sean’s Last Wish has been pushing continuously for changes in the law and the need for hate crime legislation through educating the public about the gaps. If anybody wants to join Sean’s Last Wish to help organize additional sessions in the state, please contact Elke at firstname.lastname@example.org
