Branching Out

A stronger D.C. presence for Immigration Equality

The D.C. Chapter of Immigration Equality will host a reception and fundraiser in support of same-sex, bi-national couples, and GLBT or HIV-positive asylum seekers, on Thursday, Feb. 14, from 6-8 p.m. at 1927 S St. NW, a private residence.

The group’s executive director, Rachel B. Tiven, is scheduled to discuss plans to open an office in D.C. for Immigration Equality’s local chapter.

According to a Jan. 28 press release, ”Tiven will [also] outline progress and plans for the passage of the Uniting American Families Act, a bill which would allow gay and lesbian Americans the right to sponsor their partners for immigration benefits, as well as legislation to end the HIV immigration ban.”

The annual event is open to the general public and a $75 donation is suggested. For more information, visit www.immigrationequality.org or contact events@immigrationequality.org.
