March with Immigration Equality at NYC Pride 2014

Pride Month is here! Join us for the NYC Pride March down Fifth Avenue as part of the NYC Pride March on Sunday, June 29.
The March is when our entire NY-area Immigration Equality family — supporters, staff, clients and family and friends — comes together to celebrate our victories and raise our voices in unison.
It's been an incredible year. Our binational couples are receiving green cards daily and we recently reached a remarkable milestone when our legal team secured asylum for our 600th client. We have a lot to celebrate and a lot of work that still needs to be done.
Let's march to win immediate relief from deportation for LGBT immigrants and to pass a humane immigration reform that we all deserve.
For any questions, please feel free to contact our organizer, Marco Quiroga, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**** Pride Updates and Logistics ***
Immigration Equality march participants will line up starting at 1:00pm, arriving no later than 1:30pm, at 37th Street between Madison Ave and Park Ave. The nearest subway station is the 4-5-6-7-S stop at Grand Central. Other nearby stations are circled in orange on the map below.

When & Where
Advancing equal immigration rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive community.
Immigration Equality is a national organization that works to end discrimination in U.S. immigration law, to reduce the negative impact of that law on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive people, and to help obtain asylum for those persecuted in their home country based on their sexual orientation, transgender identity or HIV-status. Through education, outreach, advocacy, and the maintenance of a nationwide network of resources, we provide information and support to advocates, attorneys, politicians and those who are threatened by persecution or the discriminatory impact of the law.
