Sign the Petition to

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump

Dear Mr. Kushner and Mrs. Trump

As two of President Trump's closest advisors, we are calling on you to condemn attacks on LGBTQ men by authorities in the Russian republic of Chechnya. In the past month, they have rounded up dozens of men on suspicion of being gay, subjecting them to torture and humiliation, and killing at least three of them.

Chechen authorities have denied that such a purge is occurring and the Kremlin has dismissed these reports, saying that those who were suffering should "file an official complaint and go to court." The United States cannot stand idly by while innocent people are being rounded up, detained, and murdered by authorities.

We urge you to forcefully speak out against these abuses, and demand the release of all gay Chechens who remain unlawfully detained.

How this will help

We must stop the mass arrests of men accused of being gay in the Russian republic of Chechnya and raise the issue of Russia's wide-ranging denial of human rights at home.
