Support Justice for LGBT People in Honduras
Since June 2009, when a military coup ousted democratically-elected president Manuel Zelaya, there has seen a marked rise in human rights abuses in Honduras. The LGBT community has been especially affected. Honduran human rights organizations have reported 70 LGBT murders since the coup, many of which have received only nominal attention and remain unresolved.
Rep. Jared Polis is circulating a letter in the House calling on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to urge the Honduran government to take immediate steps toward investigating and resolving these crimes.
Will you ask your Representative to sign the Polis letter urging the US to push for investigations into LGBT murders in Honduras?
