Taking Action to Support Russia 's LGBT Community

WHEN: Wednesday, August 28, 2013, 6:00PM
WHERE: The San Francisco LGBT Community Center , The
Ceremonial Room, 1800 Market St San Francisco , CA

As laws targeting the Russian LGBT community become increasingly oppressive and anti-LGBT vigilantes are given free rein to commit heinous attacks against LGBT people, we cannot stand idly by.

We turn to you today because you are no stranger to this adage, and your work toward effecting social change is testimony to your commitment to equality for all. The JCRC shares this commitment and is your ally. We have a long history of activism in support of civil liberties and freedom, from fighting for twenty years to change Russian policies and free oppressed Soviet Jews to championing same-sex civil marriage in the United States today.

Join us and hear about JCRC's Executive Director Doug Kahn's and former Bay Area Council for Soviet Jews Executive Director David Waksberg's experiences in challenging oppressive Russian policies through direct action in San Francisco . We stood at the gates of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco, demanding freedom for Soviet Jewry for twenty years, and now we stand as allies to the LGBT community in the Bay Area and worldwide. Join us in action.

We look forward to your attendance and best ideas.
