For some people, when they hear the words hate crime, a young man named Matthew Shepard comes to mind. Lately when the word hate is uttered it is usually in connection with presidential nominee Donald Trump. Judy Shepard, mother of Matthew, is in a new ad denouncing Trump and his campaign of hate.
Judy says in the ad “When I see the hate that Donald Trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. Words have an influence. Violence causes pain. Hate can rip us apart. I know what can happen as a result of hate, and Donald Trump should never be our president.”
