In early April, we received a terrifying message from our partners in Russia: more than 100 men had been arrested in Chechnya, accused of being gay. They were being held in an illegal prison and tortured. At least five of those men have been murdered.
And just a few days ago, we received more alarming news: the arrests have resumed.
All Out was the first group to mobilise with partners on the ground in Russia and we’re determined to keep fighting until there is justice for those persecuted and the arrests have stopped, permanently.
But there's simply no way we can continue to jump into action this quickly without recruiting people like you to join the ranks of our most dedicated supporters: Equality Champions.
