Oakland Mayor and City Council: Suspend our "sister-city" relationship with anti-gay Russian city
Please immediately pass a resolution suspending the "sister-city" relationship between Oakland and Nakhodka, Russia. We can and should send a message: we value and cherish our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender residents and will not tolerate discrimination against our LGBT brothers and sisters by a sister city.
Why is this important?
The city of Oakland should send a clear message that violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens of Russia is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
