PostHeaderIcon Uniting American Families Act

From Joe.My.God:

The Uniting American Families Act will be reintroduced to the House next Friday by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).

The act would allow the same-sex partners of legal U.S. residents to enjoy the same immigration rights as heterosexual couples. The unfair current law has stranded thousands of gay couples overseas or forced them to separate to their native countries.

Please use this contact form created by Immigration Equality to contact your member of Congress and urge them to cosponsor the act with Rep. Nadler.

This is an important piece of legislation -- particularly if your career takes you outside the United States. When the U.S. removes restrictions on families like this, it puts pressure on other countries to do the same.
