On Oct. 5 I will be a voice in a national chorus. I will join others across 80 cities in mobilizing for the National Day for Dignity and Respect on behalf of our nation's undocumented men, women and children. With one voice we will say that the time for comprehensive, compassionate immigration reform is now. We won't live in the shadows, in fear of being deported or detained.
The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs released its report yesterday of Intimate Partner Violence in LGBTQ, and HIV-Affected Communities in the United States in 2012. The timing of the report could not have been better, with today being The United Nation's sponsored "International Day of Non-Violence".
