We woke up on Wednesday with a new mandate. We won not one … not two …. not three … but four ballots on marriage equality. Now we don’t just believe Americans support LGBT people, we know they do. Just as thrilling, national exit polls show massive support – 65% – for comprehensive immigration reform. In Maryland, where immigration and marriage equality were both on the ballot, each lifted the other to victory. The roar in the room when President Obama said “We will reform our immigration system” gave me chills. Whatever political party you support, today is a great day for LGBT immigrants and their families.
If you’re already a supporter, you have my sincere appreciation. You keep this organization going, and we cannot thank you enough. If you’ve been waiting, join us now. We are just 13 monthly donors away from winning a $50,000 challenge grant on Friday. Make a monthly pledge today to help us win.
We’re going to use our mandate to build a better tomorrow for all our families. If you stand with us now, we have a real chance of winning an historic victory within the next 7 months.
With your donation:
- We’ll press the Administration to stop denying green cards for LGBT families. As we wait for the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA, we’ll demand that the government stop denying green cards that will be approve once DOMA falls.
- We’ll continue to answer every single inquiry from families across the country. We’re looking forward to talking to more Mainers, Marylanders, and Washingtonians. Congratulations! We’re going to use the momentum of our wins in the states to win federal recognition for your families, too.
- We’ll keep LGBT immigration issues in the center of the debate in the country, and in Congress. With overwhelming public support for immigration reform and LGBT equality, we’ll seize this opportunity and expand on it.
My promise to you is that we won’t stop fighting until all our families are treated equally. This is our moment, and we will be heard. Will you sign up to give monthly until we win?
The finish line is in sight. We can win this.
