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.”
