Tell Congress: Stand up to anti-LGBT hate, skip the National Prayer Breakfast
This petition had 3,542 supporters
This Thursday, "The Family," a secretive and ultra-conservative religious group with ties to political leaders around the world, will host the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. "The Family" is infamous for its anti-LGBT views and its connection to the legislation passing through the Ugandan Parliament right now known as the "Kill the Gays" bill. The legislation would allow the Ugandan government to imprison or kill LGBT Ugandans, and even people who just know LGBT Ugandans but don't report them.
"The Family" is using American money to test their hateful and bigoted ideas in Uganda and other countries around the world in order to see what they can get away with -- but we won't let them do so without fighting back.
Historically the National Prayer Breakfast has been attended by more than 3000 political and business leaders from around the world, including the President of the United States and most members of Congress. Join us in petitioning your elected representatives to stand up to "The Family's" anti-LGBT hate by passing on this year's breakfast.
Take action now and tell your representatives to NOT ATTEND this year's National Prayer Breakfast as a sign of support for LGBT Americans and our sisters and brothers around the world.
