Call on President-elect Trump to Combat Violence and Discrimination around the World

Human rights defenders around the world look to the United States to be a partner in their struggle and the LGBT community is no exception. LGBT people routinely face horrific violence and persecution simply based on who they are and who they love.

In recent years, the LGBT community has found a strong ally in the State Department, which has used its influence to advance its values of respect and fair treatment around the world. The U.S. government has the power to provide protection for vulnerable groups and create a space for dialogue that otherwise would be silenced. Urge President-elect Trump to continue this important work.
