Dear ..................l,

Greater one-horned rhinos are the second largest rhino species and can be found in India and Nepal. But despite some conservation success in the past, these rhinos are once again facing threats of extinction. Just last year, 21 rhinos were killed in India's national parks. Add your voice to help end the illegal killing of rhinos.

The IUCN Survival Commission has provided recommendations for a conservation plan to increase protection for rhinos in India. Join us in asking the government of India to move forward with the plan to protect rhinos from harm.

Poaching continues to be a threat, so we all need to show our support for a conservation plan to ensure these creatures are not hunted to extinction!

Tell the Indian government to stop the slaughter of rhinos before it's too late.


Thank you for taking action,

Human Rights First: Barrier for women seeking asylum

Dear Friend:

A teenage victim of trafficking and rape from the Balkans applied for asylum thirteen months after coming to the United States. Despite extensive evidence and testimony describing her trauma and her difficulties talking about what had happened to her, she was denied asylum. Why? Because she missed the one-year asylum filing deadline.

Urge your Senators to protect women fleeing from persecution by eliminating the asylum filing deadline.

It's reasonable to ask why some people in need of asylum don't apply for it immediately. But when you think about the experience of persecuted refugees, the answer is clear. Many are traumatized and isolated. Most speak little or no English. Some don't even know they're supposed to, or able to, seek asylum.

Victims of gender-based violence face an additional hurdle: shame. The asylum process requires them to talk to a stranger about the abuse they've suffered—a forbidding task for most, especially for women from cultures where they would be scorned and perhaps ostracized if the nature of their mistreatment became known.

We've been working to make sure that the immigration bill now being considered by the Senate includes better protection for refugees. A filing deadline, no matter the length, turns away vulnerable refugees who need our protection. Urge your Senators to protect refugees by keeping Section 3401 in the immigration bill intact.
