URGENT: Help Stop LGBT murders in Brazil!

On March 2nd a surveillance camera captured the brutal execution-style murder of Priscila, a 22-year old travesti/trans person in Brazil (Belo Horizonte). Brazil has the highest murder rate of trans people in the world.

Activists in Brazil are working with members of Parliament to pass a historic Anti-Homophobia law that would give LGBT Brazilians equal rights under the law, and call for more serious punishment of potential hate crimes. Will you take a moment to ask Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff to stand with members of her own party and push for this desperately needed measure? It only takes one minute and will make a huge difference. Click here.
