For millions of Americans the Caribbean is one of two places. For some it’s a laid-back holiday paradise. For others it’s one of the most homophobic places on Earth.
For LGBTI people who live there or visit often, there’s a third Caribbean - a place where LGBTI people are working to turn back centuries of oppression to build inclusive nations where everyone enjoys freedom and rights and dreams and justice.
LGBTI organizations and communities across the region have come together as a 16-year-old nonprofit coalition called CariFLAGS.
They do challenging work with limited resources and have recently received a US$30,000 challenge grant that will enable them to triple gifts made by individual donors by June 30, 2015.
Helping is simple: just click here and make your donation by clicking the “Help This Organization Now!” button at the bottom of the page. Your tax deductible donation of $100, $50 or even $25 will greatly help CariFLAGS receive the full match and continue its important work.
Please help them reach this year's of goal of building a region-wide mechanism to coordinate litigation and bring smarter challenges to bad laws.
Thank you for your support and for contributing to the dignity of our LGBTI friends in the Caribbean!
