Why Is This Event Important?

122 people a day are already losing their DACA protections, including DACAmented LGBTQ folks. Deportation may mean a death sentence to LGBTQ DACA recipients due to anti-LGBTQ sentiments and violence abroad. This piece of legislation cannot wait any longer. Congress must act by January 19!
