What We Do

Immigration Equality is the national leader in the field we pioneered: LGBTQ and HIV immigration rights. We work on both the personal and systemic levels to protect and uplift LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants and families.

    Law and Policy

    Immigration Equality and the Immigration Equality Action Fund have a robust legislative and administrative advocacy program to make lasting changes in our immigration system.

    Direct Legal Services

    Each year, we connect over 750 LGBTQ and HIV-positive asylum seekers with pro bono attorneys, help secure freedom for detained asylum seekers, and provide thousands more individuals with legal inquiries and referrals.

    Impact Litigation

    Through our impact litigation, we seek to change discriminatory policies affecting LGBTQ and HIV-positive people. Ourr aim is to get rulings that are far-reaching and improves the lives of our community on a large scale.
