While I can’t send sangria over the internet, I can link to the pictures from the annual Women’s Brunch, which was a delicious afternoon.
Hosted by board member Sue Zachman, the brunch featured exciting Supreme Court updates from Executive Director Rachel Tiven and Legal Director Victoria Neilson. Kelli and Lucy, plaintiffs in our lawsuit to defeat DOMA, joined us, as did many new friends.
As the Grant Writer at Immigration Equality, my desk is covered in statistics. Every day, I’m typing furiously about the legal department’s win rate (99%) and how many people called our hotline for help (3,337 in 2011). It’s nice when I can put a face to the Post-it Notes and meet our clients and supporters.
Many of you are in binational relationships and are waiting for the day you can sponsor your partner for a green card. Many of you are allies and want to help out. Whatever your story, we look forward to meeting you soon. It’s not too late to join us in this exciting year, when we’re poised to make history.
Please join me and make a monthly pledge, to help Immigration Equality reach its goal of 100 new monthly donors by October 13th. Since we’ve announced the goal, we’ve had an amazing response, including the women who joined this weekend.
Please stand with us today. http://ImEqActionFund.org/womensbrunch
