Rainbow Shirts for the Rainbow Railroad

 
 

Unitarian Universalism is built on the foundation of acceptance and activism. That's why YRUUP wanted to do something special with our second ever t-shirt fundraiser.

All proceeds from this shirt will be donated to the organization Rainbow Railroad--a charity that aids those fleeing persecution based on their gender and/or sexuality. Here's a snippet of Rainbow Railroad's mission from their website:

"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. They often have nowhere to turn because their government and police not only tolerate but encourage this brutality.

Rainbow Railroad exists to help these people get out of danger to somewhere safe. 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. 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."

Order yours now to receive it in June--just in time for pride month!
