In many places across the globe, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) people face harassment, discrimination, violence and murder. In 73 countries, simply being a member of the LGBTQI community can mean a prison sentence—or even the death penalty.
We will not remain silent as people around the world are oppressed, just because of who they are or whom they love. That’s why we’re thrilled that Senator Markey has introduced the Global Leadership Overseas for the Benefit of Equality Act (the GLOBE Act, S. 3004), a landmark piece of legislation that will advance the rights of LGBTQI people around the globe.
Send this pre-written email (feel free to personalize it!) to your Senators today, urging them to support the GLOBE Act.
