Stop Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Bill

    1. Sponsored by

      Amnesty International USA

Uganda's Parliament is considering an anti-homosexuality bill that would result in a sentence of death or life in prison for Ugandan LGBT people, and seven years for anyone offering them protection or assistance. The proposed bill is one of the most severe pieces of anti-homosexuality legislation in Africa; if passed, its impact could reverberate not only throughout the continent but globally, placing LGBT people throughout the world at greater risk and dealing a severe blow to human rights.

Urge Congress to strongly condemn the proposed legislation and tell the Ugandan government that persecution of the Ugandan LGBT community is not acceptable.
