Many brave Russians are fighting President Putin’s anti-gay laws, in the face of increasing violence and danger. But what if instead of facing only the handful of people, President Putin faced a movement of millions of us? Sign the petition!
To President Putin, Russian politicians and all world leaders:
We stand with citizens across Russia who are calling on their government to stop the crackdown against lesbian, gay, bi and trans people that is fueling anti-gay violence.
We urge leaders around the world and within Russia to work to eliminate all anti-gay laws and protect all citizens from violence and discrimination in Russia.
