“WE HELP LGBT PEOPLE ESCAPE PERSECUTION AND VIOLENCE
In countries all over the world, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) people live in basic fear for their freedom, their safety and their lives."
3) "They often have nowhere to turn because their government and police not only tolerate but encourage this brutality.— ARKELLS (@arkellsmusic) March 22, 2019
Rainbow Railroad exists to help these people get out of danger to somewhere safe."
4) "In the spirit of and with homage to the Underground Railroad, the mission of Rainbow Railroad is to help LGBTQI people as they seek safe haven from state-enabled violence, murder or persecution."— ARKELLS (@arkellsmusic) March 22, 2019
5) Through funds collected by people like you, we’re able to support, provide information, and help to arrange safe transportation for these LGBTQI people to somewhere in the world where they can live their lives in freedom.”— ARKELLS (@arkellsmusic) March 22, 2019
