Immigration Equality, a US grass roots organization, fights for families torn apart by discriminatory immigration laws. A US citizen cannot sponsor her partner for a green card, no matter how long they've been together, how many children they have, or whether they were married in Massachusetts or abroad.
Immigration Equality also focuses on winning asylum for LGBT refugees fleeing sexual orientation and gender identity-based persecution, and fighting for an end to the immigration discrimination against people with HIV.
A friend from the Haven Coalition has just been named the group's first Executive Director. She's a great activist and an outstanding person. Immigration Equality is lucky to have her on board.
