Stand up for our children and support H.B. 2889 - Contact your State Senator today!
A new bill that would significantly strengthen penalties for child sex offenders just passed the Arizona House of Representatives in a near unanimous vote.

H.B. 2889 would establish life-in-prison sentences for child sex offenders in Arizona without the possibility of early release.

The bill enjoys strong support across the board, but still must be passed by the Arizona Senate in order to get to the Governor’s desk and be signed into law.

That’s why we’re asking you to contact your State Senator and ask them to support this important piece of legislation!

You can contact your State Senator in one easy step using this simple contact form that LifeSiteNews.com is making available here, on the Voter Voice platform.

With one click, your message is sent directly to your representatives without having to look up any of their contact details.

Under current Arizona law, convicted child sex offenders generally face prison sentences of 10 to 20 years, and are sometimes eligible for various forms of early release, including parole and probation.

H.B. 2889 would change that: Those convicted of crimes ranging from child sex trafficking to production/distribution of child pornography would face automatic life sentences without any opportunity for early release.

And while this legislation was introduced and sponsored by Republican lawmakers, it still managed to pass the Arizona House with overwhelming bipartisan support: Only one member of the chamber voted against it.

The popularity of this bill is strong, but we must never take anything for granted: It’s up to us to let our State Senators know that we support it, too, and that they should, as well, when it comes to the floor for a vote.

Please take a few minutes to contact your State Senator and request that they vote in favor of H.B. 2889.


If it passes the Senate and becomes law, Arizona could set a crucial precedent for our nation in terms of how our criminal justice system approaches its most depraved offenders.

Our children must be protected, and those who do them harm must be brought to justice. H.B. 2889 will strengthen this commitment here in Arizona.

Thank you for helping deliver this message to them.
