About Rainbow Railroad
In countries all over the world, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-identified (LGBT) people still 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 the Underground Railroad, the mission of Rainbow Railroad is to help LGBT people as they seek a safe-haven from state-enabled violence, murder or persecution. Through donations from people like you, American Friends of Rainbow Railroad, Inc. provides funds to help Rainbow Railroad provide information and financial support to help LGBT individuals travel to places where they can live their lives in safety.
