Below is an update on our previously posted call to action to contact your representatives asking their support of the Polis letter. Keep up the pressure!
“Dear Friends: The Polis letter on LGBT murders in Honduras now has 13 signers. In addition to the 6 initial signers, the following were added today: Reps Woolsey (D-CA), Grijalva (D-AZ), Velazquez (D-NY), Hinchey (NY-OR), Schiff (D-CA), Lee (D-CA), and Blumenauer (D-OR). Schiff is a first time signer on a Honduras letter, and has a June 11 statement in support of LGBT Pride Month.
We are off to a good start! Keep the calls and emails going in to the foreign policy staffers with the action alert below.”

As you may have noticed, the site has been rapidly updating. Our team is adding more and more content everyday in order to best express our findings and keep everyone up to date on the status of conflict in Honduras.
So please, check back often and see what new information we have in store for you all.
The purpose of this site is to share the findings of the delegates involved in the Alliance for Global Justice and Rights Action delegation to Honduras in May 2012.
We may also share outside information such as news, blogs, “calls to action” and other forms of media primarily with the purpose of providing contextual information, comparative analysis, or furthering the ability of the viewers to get involved in aiding the people of Honduras in this incredibly urgent situation.
If you have any questions regarding this delegation or would like more information on the situations in Honduras, please contact Karen Spring, 9507-3835 (In Honduras) or Annie Bird, 202-680-3002 (in Washington, D.C.).
