Immigration Equality Action Fund advocates on Capitol Hill for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive immigrants and their families. To end discrimination in U.S. immigration law, Immigration Equality Action Fund works to pass the Uniting American Families Act and LGBT-inclusive Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The Action Fund lobbies legislators and other policy makers, builds coalitions, and empowers LGBT immigrant families around the country to fight for change.
Immigration Equality is a national organization that works to end discrimination in U.S. immigration law, to reduce the negative impact of that law on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive people, and to help win asylum for those fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation, transgender identity or HIV-status.
Immigration Equality’s national intake hotline provides free legal information to LGBT and HIV-positive people, and our legal team trains lawyers and represents LGBT and HIV-positive asylum seekers from around the world.
