Every donation is doubled for
OutRight Action International
As hate and cruelty emerge worldwide, your help will ensure OutRight can use its international platform to uplift the voices of those most affected. In the face of a growing flagrant and bold opposition, help us rise up to protect those in harm's way and demand respect for human rights for LGBTIQ people.
The United States peels back protections for transgender students and workers, and Zimbabwe threatens the arrest and expulsion of LGBTIQ rights activist Rikki Nathanson. Sometimes it may feel as if everywhere we look there is an onslaught on our communities. Prison, torture. forced anal exams, conversion therapy, violence from our own families - there are so many ways LGBTIQ people are under attack. This is why OutRight's work is so important.
We rise up in this global tide of LGBTIQ crackdowns, putting pressure on international governments to prioritize human rights for people everywhere. With your help, we train officials and media, advocate at the United Nations, and support grassroot activitsts so they can speak on their own behalf on the world stage. OutRight is taking action to rise up against hate.
Join us as we rise up!
Thanks to two generous donors every donation on Give OUT Day will be matched up to $20,000!
We've set a goal of $20,000 and any amount, big or small, will help. Remember, all donations will be matched! Will you join me? My individual goal is $1200.
Our community continues to endure heartbreaking injustices. But each donation chips away at ignorance, helping to remove obstacles every step of the way.
