The National Association for
the Advancement of Colored Peo
ple, 70 Fifth Avenue, New York,
today issued a statement urging
every colored man and woman in
the United States, as soon as it
is announced that the Dyer Bill
is reported put of committee and
is before Congress, to telegraph
to his or her representative in
Congress urging passage of the
federal anti-lynching bill intro
duced by Representative Leoni
das C. Dyer of Missouri. There
is every prospect that the bill for
which the Association has been
fighting for more than a year
will soon be reported out of Com
mittee, and will be ready for con
sideration by the Congress. This
is the first time a federal anti
lynching bill has ever reached so
favorable a stage, and there is
every possibility provided colored
people throughout the United
States and white people who
stand for law and order unite in
demanding its passage, that it
will bo enacted into law.
As early as January, 1920
representatives of the National
Association for the Advance,
ment of Colored People attended
the hearings of the bill in Wash
ington. Arthur B. Spingarn.
vice president of the National
Association and Chairman of the
Legal Committee of the Associa
tion, was among those who ap
peared, as were Archibald H.
Grimko, Nevai H. Thomas and
Professor George W. Cook of the
Washington Branch, and James
I Weldon Johnson, the national
was not reported out, but a new
? bill was introduced by Mr. Dyer,
in May: was favorebly reported,
and was placed on the calendar
of the House of Representatives
; a few days before the adjourn
ment of the 66th Congress. It is
; substantially the same bill which
[ is now before the House Judiciary
i Committee. The bill provides:
That the putting to death with
i in any state of any person within
the jurisdiction of that state-by
a mob or rioteous assemblage of
three or more persons openly
acting in concert, is an offense
against the United States; that
every participant in such mob
shall be guilty of murder and
liable to prosecution in a District
Court of the United States; that
every county in which such mur
der occurs shall be fined $10,000,
recoverable in a United States
Court; that every state or muni
cipal officers who neglects all
reasonable efforts to protect his
prisoners shall be liable to pros
ecution in a District Court of the
United States, and may be
punished by imprisonment not
exceeding five years, or by fine
not exceeding $5,000 or both.
In making public the present
status of the Dyer Anti-Lynch
ing Bill, the National Associa
tion for the Advancement of
Colored People urges that colored
people organize so that as soon
as the Dyer bill is before Con
gress, a flood of telegrsma, from
white people x and colored, in
every part of the United States
will go to every Representative
in Congress urging the passage
of the measure.
