Human Rights Campaign Equality Votes PAC Launches Final Mobilization Campaign to Educate and Mobilize Equality Voters

The ads target hundreds of thousands of “Equality Voters” in key districts where their turnout is critical to the outcome of the Presidential contest statewide. Partnering with the data and analytics firm Catalist to create an “Equality Voter Model,” the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) built on decades of voter and polling data to assess the degree to which a person is likely to support pro-LGBTQ policies — from marriage equality and adoption by LGBTQ parents, to laws that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Supporters in any state can go to hrc.org/vote to register to vote, verify their voter registration, find out about early in-person or mail voting options and receive election reminders. For more information on how to get involved, sign up to volunteer, or join an advocacy training, visit HRC’s Equality Voter Action Center.

Human trafficking is a very real and scary thing, but what you need to be looking out for may not be what you think.

Hope Found of Northeast Arkansas is working hard to raise awareness of the dangers of human trafficking, while also advising the signs don’t always look like we expect.

One of the biggest hurdles in educating others on trafficking is debunking the rumors that often overwhelm the fight to stop trafficking.

Co-founder of Hope Found Megan Brown says while it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and be vigilant, properly educating yourself on sex trafficking is the best way to protect yourself and others.

Typically, social media posts about vehicles being tagged, suspicious

Ethiopia Loses Its “Champion of Human Rights”

There is no doubt about it; Ethiopia has lost its foremost and most reputed champion of human rights. Professor Mesfin Wolde Mariam was a champion of human rights par excellence, a man who strictly lived what he preached and introduced a new standard of human rights protection in the country. This has been seconded by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in his message of condolences to the family and people of Ethiopia in general. A man who believed in the principle that only ideas must be the determinants in any political debates or controversies, dismissing any option of violence. Freedom of thought and expression were the trademarks of the late Professor Mesfin who tireless preached these principles to anyone who headed the country’s establishment.

Ever since his acquaintance and inspiration by India’s Mahatma Ghandi’s philosophy of non violence in protests during his higher education mission in India, Professor Mesfin has always

“Nonsense about some human rights”. Meet Poland’s new education minister

“Let’s quit discussing these LGBT abominations, homosexuality, bisexuality, equality parades” – Przemysław Czarnek said a few months ago. First as a voivode, and then as Law and Justice lawmaker, he often discussed the topic of sexual orientation in the media. What he practically never talked about were science and education – the issues he will now be dealing with as minister.

Przemysław Czarnek will stand at the helm of the newly merged ministries of education and science, and starting October 1, he will work as a professor at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin. He was promoted in August by the former rector of the school. The ongoing disciplinary action over Czarnek’s words on LGBT people wasn’t an obstacle. Which words exactly?

“Nonsense about some human rights”

“Let’s protect families from this sort of degeneration, corruption, absolutely immoral conduct, let’s protect ourselves from the LGBT ideology and let’s
