August Recess Action Center
Tell Your Immigration Story
An estimated 267,000 people are living under the dual shadow of anti-LGBT bias and discrimination because of their undocumented status. We have joined many organizations in pressing for immigration reform that fairly addresses the needs of many communities, including LGBT people. To do that, we need to let people know who LGBT immigrants and their families are and how they are affected by the current system.
Telling our story is an effecrtive tool for educating legislators and community members about the need for immigration reform.
Your story can change the way our opposition understands our issues and move them to support us and champion reform.
If you have been impacted by immigration laws or are seeking asylum or have been detained in immigration detention, please share your story below.
