About Our Principle 6 Campaign Supporting Equality in Sochi:
The countdown is on. We are less than four months away from the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, and the International Olympic Committee has taken no meaningful action in response to Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law.
We have already helped deliver over 300,000 signatures urging the IOC to stand up for equality in Russia. But, the IOC's response was not enough. They said "as long as the Olympic Charter is respected, we are satisfied.”
Well, we’re not satisfied. Since when does a law that discriminates against individuals on the basis of sexual orientation – or any other basis – “respect” the Olympic Charter? Principle 6 of the Olympic Charter states:
“Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement.”
Help us tell IOC President Bach that he needs to do more to uphold Principle 6 and stand in solidarity with all athletes, regardless of sexual orientation.
