Thank you for asking Secretary Clinton to urge the Russian government to end its systematic persecution of civil society and dissent groups.
In the case of Russia, Human Rights Firsts not only works to combat hate crimes, which have significantly increased over the past decade, but also work to end the misuse of antiextremism and incitement laws. These laws were established to prosecute perpetrators of hate crimes, but are also misused to persecute civil society and dissenting voices including human rights, religious, and LGBT and minority groups.
