OII’s Julius Kaggwa quoted re: LGBTI struggle in Uganda

US Faith Leaders have banded together to support the LGBTI community in Uganda, and call for a ban to anti-homosexuality bill.

OII member Julius Kaggwa is quoted:

…Julius Kaggwa, a prominent Ugandan LGBTI rights activist in Washington, DC this week for Human Rights First’s inaugural Human Rights Summit, hailed the supportive calls from faith leaders, noting, “As a Christian, the rhetorical assault coming from our political and faith leaders in Uganda is particularly disheartening. My own faith remains strong, and the support we receive from American political and religious figures is important.”

“We are trying to influence our own government, but we need all the international help we can get at this critical juncture,” says Kaggwa.
