Education and Information
The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) is pleased to co-present with Immigrants Rising, an inclusive toolkit that provides income generation options to UC students and alumni, with or without work authorization. This resource provides guidance on how to earn a living as an independent contractor, confers advice on how to incorporate a business, and shares resources that are available both on and off UC campuses.
Of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States today, hundreds of thousands identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT. In a first-of-its-kind analysis, a report by the Williams Institute at UCLA estimates the number of LGBT-identified undocumented adults living in the United States today.
The Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project (QUIP), a program of United We Dream seeks to organize and empower Undocumented Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer immigrants, LGBTQ immigrants and allies to address social and systemic barriers that affect themselves and the broader LGBTQ & immigrant community.
Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement (Familia: TQLM) is the only national organization that addresses, organizes, educates, and advocates for the issues most important to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) and Latino communities. Familia: TQLM is inclusive and serves of all LGBTQ Latinos, Latinas, and gender nonconforming individuals. We also collaborate with non-LGBTQ families and friends who support our vision of a united LGBTQ Latino and Latina community.
Immigration Equality has heard from many of you who are feeling anxious about how the U.S. government has been targeting immigrants. We know that some of you feel unsafe going to work, taking your children to school, or even just being outside of your homes. At the same time, many of you have also shared with us that you are proud to be a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ), or HIV-positive immigrant in America.
