Thanks for signing the petition against the anti-gay attacks in Russia.
The International Olympic Committee chose Russia to host the next Winter Olympics, despite human rights concerns – and now they're refusing to speak out against the anti-gay crackdown in the country. If the IOC condemns Russia's anti-gay laws before the Games, it would put huge pressure on President Putin to end the crackdown.
Already 200,000 of us have signed the petition. If we get to 300,000 signatures, we'll deliver every name to the IOC's head office in Switzerland.

Global coverage of the Winter Olympics has just launched, thrusting Russia into the spotlight. That means we have a major chance right now to push world leaders to speak out against the attacks in Russia.
One world leader could really make a difference at this critical moment – the International Olympics Committee. They chose Russia to host the Olympics, despite human rights concerns, and now they're refusing to speak out against Russia's anti-gay laws.
If the IOC condemns Russia's anti-gay laws before the Olympics, it would put huge pressure on President Putin to put an end to them.
Already 200,000 of us have signed a petition to world leaders. When we hit 300,000, every name will be delivered to the International Olympic Committee's head office in Switzerland in a way they can't ignore.
Will you join me and sign the petition?
