A Valentine for Frank Mugisha

    1. Petition by

      Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights

Imagine a life where your sexual orientation or gender identity can be punished by death, by your own government. This is reality for Frank Mugisha and hundreds of thousands of LGBTI people living in Uganda, where Parliament is working on a now-infamous Anti-Homosexuality Bill that carries a death penalty sentence. 

This Valentine's Day, join the RFK Center and advocates around the world in sending a "Social Justice Valentine" to Frank and his partners at Sexual Minorities Uganda, the nation's largest LGBTI rights coalition. For every signature to our petition, the RFK Center will deliver a valentine to Uganda calling for LGBTI justice and a permanent end to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. This year, while you reach out to those you love on Valentine's Day, join us in sending a message about the freedom to love to those fighting for justice in Uganda.

To:
Members of the Ugandan Parliament
After years of advocacy by Ugandan activists like Frank Mugisha, and international outrage, it's time to end the Anti-Homosexuality Bill once and for all. As Frank told the Chicago Sun-Times in an op-ed last Spring: There is nothing gay or straight about human rights.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Frank's bravery (and so many others) is awe-inspiring and deserves respect and support. I am sorry you are not getting more sign-ups. Big respect. A giant shout out to anyone in Uganda or other places where LGBT is sanctioned to stand tall and stay safe.

      Because a threat to anyone's right to love is a threat to everyone's rights.
