Lavan letters are love letters to our lawmakers reflecting our need for the passage of the Equality Bill that will protect everyone against SOGIESC-based discrimination. Through our love letters, we want to show a huge clamor for equality and nondiscrimination through the Equality Bill.

Who are the stakeholders involved in this campaign?
This is a public campaign which can involve anyone regardless of their sector or affiliation as long as you support the passage of a national anti-discrmination law which will anyone regardless of their SOGIESC.
What is the time frame of Lavan Letters and where will this be used?
The collection of the LoveAn letters will end by November 30. These letters will then be sent to Lagablab Network and Lagablab will hold a media presscon to send a message to our lawmakers carrying the 100k letters demanding for a nationwide protection.
Why should we support and participate in this campaign?
Enemies of equality, particularly opposing legislators, are convinced that there is no urgent need for an anti-discrimination law. The bill however has been languishing in congress for 23 years now despite the persistence of stigma, discrimination, and violence which can target anyone regardless of their SOGIESC.
How can you support and participate in this campaign?
Support for this campaign goes in two ways. Everyone is encouraged to write lavan letters to legislators or read their letters online through tiktok videos or reels. Moreover, we can take it to another level by setting up lavan letter booths and collect more letters from our respective communities.
