As we head into a second week of political conventions, I’m writing to you because I’m appalled at what I’ve been hearing. The xenophobic hate speech has been disturbing. Politicians are using immigrants as a scapegoat for fear mongering and manipulation. But we know the truth, and it is time to speak up.
Every day, dozens of immigrants like Oliver walk through our door in search of safety. With Immigration Equality’s help, LGBTQ asylum seekers and families survive and thrive. And when they do, America benefits from their success.Immigration Equality’s clients become health care providers, teachers, and community organizers. They are parents and partners and friends.
We cannot allow angry, anti-immigrant voices to be the only ones heard. Immigration Equality will continue telling the truth about immigrants from now until Election Day. Click here for a preview of what’s to come.
There is a lot at stake in this election. Together, we can make a difference; but we cannot do this without your help. Please make a contribution today to support our lifesaving work.
