Despite the efforts by US and other governments to reinforce protection for LGBT refugees, this community remains a partially recognized group.

New publication is available at the Scout Report!

Facing Freedom
This fine site from the Chicago History Museum asks the question: “What would you do for freedom?” With this in mind, the site encourages young people to “experience four ways Americans have defined freedom:” through workers’ rights, armed conflict, race and citizenship, and public protest. The four themes are further divided into eight specific historical occurrences, including strikes by the United Farm Workers in California and the struggle for American Indian rights in South Dakota in 1973. Visitors young and old can use the primary and secondary sources here (including photos, audio clips, and videos) to interpret the history featured in the exhibit. It’s a thoughtful and interactive way to explore these issues, and visitors who wish to par ticipate more can add to the online if they so chose.
