Petition:

To
The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York.

Your Grace,

We are writing to you due to your prominent position within the Anglican community, your connections with Uganda and David Kato's connections with the York community.

In recognition of the murder of Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato, we call on you to condemn threats, harassment and attacks on any individual due to their actual, or perceived, sexual orientation.

We recognise that you have been a strong advocate for human rights causes - we urge you to you reaffirm an individual's right to enjoy safety and security regardless of their sexual orientation.

Yours sincerely,

The undersigned
