Well, it actually happened. And, I will be the first to say that I thought this was impossible.
I’ve heard from many of you this morning, and I know that you are feeling fear, disillusionment, and despair. Some of you went to bed crying, and some woke up still crying. I hear you. I feel you.
But what do we do about it now? At Immigration Equality, we have been protecting and empowering LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants for more than 20 years. And, I have never felt that our mission was more necessary. Our country, and the world, are about to change… All that we have achieved over the last two decades is in danger of being taken away.
We cannot let that happen! Will you fight like hell with us to save this country? Will you stand up and cry out that America means more than ugly words and angry men? We need your support now more than ever before. For the next four years, we will strive every day to save lives, to defend our progress, and to take back the soul of this nation.
For those of you who are immigrants, please know that we are here for you. And, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep you and your family safe.
