As momentum builds in Congress for LGBT equality, locally, in New York, nearly 100 local interfaith leaders have signed a letter to Senator Charles Schumer to include equal protection for LGBT families in immigration reform legislation.
“In the last two weeks we have seen an unprecedented amount of senators step forward in favor of equal marriage rights for same sex couples,” said Alan van Capelle, CEO of Bend the Arc. “They’ve talked about their journey and support…this immigration battle is the first opportunity to demonstrate their support.”
