HRC is joining several other human rights and LGBT equality groups today for a Global Speak Out on Russia.
Last month, HRC asked its members and supporters to call on the International Olympic Committee to condemn the repressive anti-LGBT law and to guarantee the safety of Olympic participants and spectators. Since then, nearly 120,000 people have spoken out.
We cannot ignore a government that outlaws people like us who support equality. And, we will not quit pushing the IOC until they have done everything in their power to help reverse the dangerous course that the Russian government has chartered.
There’s still time to add your name to HRC’s letter to the IOC now.
