Tell Sec. Clinton: Help Protect LGBTI Refugees from Violence
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) refugees are the most vulnerable and isolated among refugees. They seek protection from violence and discrimination in a new country only to face the same persecution from which they fled.
In December 2011, President Obama committed to make the rights of LGBT people a priority in U.S. foreign policy. Since then, the U.S. State Department has made great strides in that direction, but there is still much more to be done—especially for LGBTI refugees.
Help us make a difference. Tell Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to help make sure that LGBTI refugees gain access to safety and protection from violence in their countries of asylum.
