Program areas at Immigration Equality

Legal: immigration equality's legal program provides probono legal services and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (lgbtq) and hiv-positive immigrants and maintains a hotline that provides free, accurate legal advice about complex legal questions to thousands of callers annually. A team of six experienced immigration lawyers and paralegals answers all hotline inquiries. Immigration equality and its probono program directly represent hundreds of lgbtq and hiv-positive asylum seekers.

Advocacy: based on discrimination our constituents face, immigration equality advocates for policy changes throughout the immigration system, brings impact litigation, builds coalitions, and drives attention to the human toll of discrimination against lgbtq immigrants.

Outreach: immigration equality's communications and public education efforts focus on the discriminatory impact of immigration law on lgbtq immigrants and their families. In 2018, immigration equality's communications team secured more than 200 media placements in mainstream print, national and local television, talk radio, and other outlets. More than 20,000 activists, attorneys, faith leaders, and other constituents subscribe to immigration equality's emails and action alerts, and our website has over 450,000 unique visitors per year.
