LGBT: September 2010 Archives



The fate of almost a million lives could be decided in the next six hours.  As a voter, as a millenial, as a migrant, as a Guatemalan, I'm writing to say that I will be watching along with the vast majority of those who will determine the future of the United States of America. 

If you already haven't heard already, Harry Reid is going to offer the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act up as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.  The Senate is scheduled to vote on taking up the Act tomorrow at 2:15 p.m.  If you haven't called you're Senator yet in the support of the DREAM Act please do so now by calling:

888-254-5087

It is imperative that you focus on these Senators.  If you've called already, call again.  If you've called again, ask five friends to do the same.  If you've done all that, here are some more actions you can take.
A leader in the movement to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell, just tweeted this:

Our dreams and realities are inextricably linked. I support the #DreamAct because the American promise is for ALL.less than a minute ago via web


As I've written about before, the unity and solidarity between the migrant youth movement and the LGBT movement was forged longed before this week.  See also my co-blogger Dave's post on the dual protests of Harry Reid by Lt. Dan Choi and migrant youth leaders
