In the U.S., there are 32,000 same-sex binational couples raising 11,200 children. There are approximately one million LGBT immigrant adults: an estimated two-thirds are documented and one-third are undocumented. And 49% of LGBT undocumented immigrants are between the ages of 18 and 29.
Join us as we mobilize our members and supporters for this important rally.
Let’s pass immigration reform that keeps LGBT families together, creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented adults & youth, protects the health & safety of LGBT immigrants, and improves the U.S. asylum system for LGBT applicants.
