As violence against LGBT people escalates in parts of the world (Middle East, Russia, some countries in Africa and South America), people sometimes flee for their lives to the U.S. where organizations like the Center help them get asylum—or face death at home. Others are LGBT people who were brought here by parents when they were children, are not U.S. citizens, and have no connection to the country from which their families emigrated. They’re currently protected by the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Program.

New policies to prevent non-citizens from accessing Health and other social services like those offered by the Center, or that repeal DACA and force them out of the country, could destroy lives.
