Global Ministries Responds to Uganda's Bill on Sexual Discrimination
Currently on the table in the Ugandan Parliament is the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009, which would discriminate against and outlaw homosexuality. This would also in turn, hinder HIV prevention efforts. This letter was sent on behalf of Global Ministries in response to this legislation. Global Ministries is a partnership between the United Church of Christ and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
