Have a look at The Friends New Underground Railroad. They are helping LGBTQ Ugandans whose lives are at risk for, well, being LGBTQ.
From their website:
Olympia Monthly Meeting has been called to create a “New Underground Railroad” project to aid LGBTQ Ugandans who are fleeing their homeland for their lives and safety. We have been given an opportunity to provide direct assistance that will save lives. In the first few weeks of this effort we helped 17 LGBTQ Ugandans get to safety and freedom [see the FAQs page for more current numbers]. Many others remain at risk, and are trying to escape.
We've thought about Uganda a lot ever since seeing Call Me Kuchu a few years ago. As travel writers, we have mixed feelings about our co-travel enthusiasts who race to such an equality-unfriendly place in the interest of seeing gorillas.
We've done similar things.
That's a different post for a different day.
