Take action: Russian anti-LGBT law spiraling out of control

This petition had 7,516 supporters

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) claims that Russia's repressive anti-LGBT law won't affect visitors at the Olympics.

But private assurances to the IOC by unnamed Russian officials aren't going to cut it when some government officials are saying the exact opposite – especially since the government has already launched a crackdown on its own LGBT citizens.

The IOC must speak out against the human rights abuses under way in Russia and get an explicit, written guarantee from Russian President Vladimir Putin that visitors to the Olympics will be safe.

Add your name to HRC's statement to the IOC now.
