Every person in the U.S. is affected by the outcomes of the elections, but not everyone can vote. This November, Immigration Equality calls on those who can vote to vote for those who cannot.
How can I be part of the #vote4us campaign?
Participating is easy. To voice your support for pro-immigrant and pro-LGBTQ candidates you can:
- Put a frame around your Facebook profile picture using this link.
- Tweet a message of support with one of our premade graphics featuring our clients (see below)

Do I need to be eligible to vote to be a part of the #vote4us campaign?
#vote4us is for everyone! If you are not eligible to vote, you can encourage others to do so by sharing why their vote matters to you. Your voice matters!
How do I know if a candidate shares my values?
If you’d like to vote for candidates with pro-immigrant, pro-LGBTQ stances, here are some sample questions you can ask at a town hall meeting or through correspondence with the candidate’s representatives:
- If elected, what would you do to protect the DREAMers, Americans who were brought to the U.S. as children?
- If elected, what would you do to ensure that no one could be fired for their sexual orientation or gender identity?
- If elected, what would you do to end the mass detention of immigrants?
- If elected, what would you do to ensure that transgender people are able to use the bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity?
- Do you believe that this country should continue to be a safe haven for refugees fleeing persecution abroad?
Election day is Tuesday, November 6. Don’t forget to register and #vote4us!
