Statement from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund regarding Today’s March for Dignity and Respect

October 8, 2013

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force responds to today’s immigration reform March for Dignity and Respect. Statement by Rea Carey, executive director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund:

Shutdowns will not shut us up and we applaud the organizers of the March for Dignity and Respect for their courage and action. Congress must pass fair immigration reform now. There are political consequences for politicians who obstruct the nation’s business and ignore popular issues such as immigration reform. More importantly there are moral consequences of their inaction: with thousands of families being separated from their loved ones and facing extraordinary hardship. The 11 million undocumented immigrants, more than a quarter of a million of whom are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, deserve a fair shot at the American Dream.
