Urge Your Member of Congress to Cosponsor the Reuniting Families Act!

Congressman Mike Honda’s Reuniting Families Act ends harmful practices -- such as long visa wait times and discrimination against LGBT families -- that prevent loving families from being together.

In an historic move, Congressman Honda has included lesbian and gay people as part of this remarkable legislation -- marking the first time in Congressional history that lesbian and gay couples have been included as part of a multi-issue immigration bill.

As our country begins a conversation about comprehensive immigration reform, this important first step helps to ensure that, moving forward, we’re included, too. The president supports us, and Congress is increasingly on our side. Now, our community can be part of fixing our nation’s broken immigration system by supporting their efforts.

Please stand with Congressman Honda and our families, and urge your elected representative to co-sponsor the Reuniting Families Act.

Take action:

Call NOW to urge your representative to cosponsor the Reuniting Families Act!

Contact the Capital Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to be directly connected to your representative. (If you don’t know who your representative is you can find out at www.congressmerge.com.)

Also join the mailing list or make a donation to Immigration Equality.

This one is really important to me. Because L'Ailee and I are a cross-cultural couple--a Russian and a redneck, respectively--we understand just how easily that could've been us. Thank you for highlighting actions that we can take.

I have tried calling all day today only to hear a recorded message that all circuits are busy. I've never had that happen before.
