It’s Pride Month, and PHRI employee Andrew Pineau is raising funds for the “Rainbow Railroad” charity that helps LGBTQIA+ people around the world escape violence and get to safety. In 2022, almost 10,000 people requested assistance through Rainbow Railroad.
Pineau, who is a Senior Solutions Developer in our ICT department, writes on his donation page:
“LGBTQI+ people have been under increasing attack in the last couple years having their hard-fought rights stripped away and/or threatened. They have also been the target of highly coordinated disinformation campaigns that attack and demonize their very existence.
This has been a very stressful time for the LGBTQI+ community, myself included, so I feel compelled to do something positive to counter this negativity. That’s why this Pride month, I have decided to fundraise for Rainbow Railroad.”
