Thanks to You: Successful Congressional Letter on LGBT Murders in Honduras

Thanks to the hard work of activists, an astounding 84 members of Congress sent a letter to Secretary of State Clinton addressing the murders of 70 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) Hondurans since the June 2009 coup.  The letter highlights the recent murder of LGBT leader and candidate of the resistance LIBRE party Erick Martinez, seeks specific information on the 2009 murder of LGBT coup resistance leader Walter Trochez, and requests the outcomes of the 10 cases that have been “closed” through the U.S. assisted Special Victims Unit in Honduras.

Thanks so much to all of the people who worked hard to get their member of Congress to sign this letter!
