CALL TO ACTION: We urge the Government of Canada to work with Rainbow Railroad to evacuate and resettle LGBTQI+ refugees, from Afghanistan & around the world.
The Taliban is actively persecuting LGBTQI+ Afghans and their allies. Individuals we serve have had their phones and homes searched, their passports confiscated or burned, and continue to face the most extreme violence – from beatings to torture. They need urgent help.
Right now, 300 LGBTQI+ Afghans are ready for imminent travel and resettlement in a safer country. But they’re stuck.
Rainbow Railroad stands ready to partner with the Canadian Government to identify, triage, verify and support as many LGBTQI+ Afghans refugees as possible. Thanks to our intervention, 236 Afghans have already been resettled or are working through the resettlement process – and we are ready to do more.
Please, sign today, share with your networks, and support Rainbow Railroad in our efforts to help the LGBTQI+ Afghan community.
