Immigration Equality
June 25, 2009

Excellent organization that has been doing a phenomenal job with limited resources. The director, policy team and other staff are all fantastic and have dramatically raised the profile of immigration discrimination against gay couples in recent months.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

raising profile of a controversial and often ignored issue; getting asylum for clients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the fundraising and lobbying team in DC

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

creative, resourceful, professional staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

inspiring, dedicated, hard working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

end the cruel separation of thousands of same-sex binational couples. Today, a straight person can import a spouse from another country without even having met them, but a gay person cannot sponsor a spouse of 20 years for immigration.

Ways to make it better...

the organization had more money and resources.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

homophobia, lack of funding, lack of visibility of binational gay couples
