Thank you for your interest in helping to pass Marsy’s Law — and to help in our nationwide effort to see victims of crime afforded equal Constitutional rights.
Above you will see a map of the country that not only is color-coded to give you an idea of the status of the rights of crime victims in your state, but if you click on your state you will be taken to your state home page, where you can get more localized information, and get involved!
Marsy’s Law is not a partisan issue. Giving crime victims co-equal rights is a rare political issue that Republicans and Democrats are unified in supporting. Marsy’s Law has already been passed and has already become law in California and in Illinois. In fact, in November 2014, voters in Illinois passed Marsy’s Law by an overwhelming 78% of the vote — the largest percentage victory for a Constitutional amendment in state history!
Find out what you can do to help pass Marsy’s Law in your state and give crime victims the rights they deserve.
Thank you for being a part of this important national campaign!
