WHO THEY ARE:
“Rainbow Railroad receives hundreds of requests for help every year from countries where LGBT individuals are open targets of violence.
Because the volume of requests is so high, we focus our efforts on assisting LGBT people who have faced physical violence or face an imminent threat of violence, imprisonment, or death.
We have been successful in helping individuals from the Caribbean, Africa and Middle East where we have local networks to support and validate cases.”
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HELP?
“The costs range as every case is unique. Sometimes the individual has the resources to help themselves and they just need information and support from us to make a move. In these cases, the cost to Rainbow Railroad is staff and volunteer time to research and provide information. In cases where they need financial support to get to safety, it costs about $5000 to cover flights and other related costs.”
