The Human Rights Campaign is donating an additional $40,000 to Russia Freedom Fund after an initial donation of $100,000 the organization made in December. The donation is the sum of all donations made to the  “Love Conquers Hate” campaign that worked to raise awareness about the Russian government’s discriminatory anti-gay propaganda law. “The Russian government’s hateful campaign against its own people has been exposed and the world is watching,” said Ty Cobb, director of HRC’s Global Engagement Program. “The Sochi Olympic Games shined the spotlight on Russia’s horrific and dangerous anti-LGBT law, but with the Olympics over, we can’t leave LGBT Russians behind.”
