Progressive Update--11/30/2009--Out4Immigration

There is much inequality for the GLBT community. One area of inequality is immigration to the US. A non-gay couple, since they can marry and have their marriage recognized in the US, with one US citizen, can petition to have the other member of the couple immigrate to the US. However a gay couple (whether married outside the US (or inside) or not), has no such right.

Out4Immigration is an all grassroots organization and our letter writing campaign is now in its 40th week.

This week, we are focusing on Senator Thomas Carper (D) of Delaware.

Senator Carper recently stated in a Delaware News Journal article that he was unfamiliar with the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA). The article was about bi-national couples in Delaware forced apart because of our nation's discriminatory immigration laws.

Please take action to help familiarize Senator Carper with the UAFA!

Click the link below to send an e-mail to Senator Carper, and please also forward this on to family and friends, and share on Facebook, Twitter, etc... We need as many people to sign this each week as possible, and the link makes doing this quick and easy!
