Take Action: Oppose Anti-LGBTQ Adoption Amendment in Congress

Congressional Republicans have voted at the committee level to discriminate against LGBTQ couples who want to adopt.

From the HRC:

“If it remains in the final bill, the amendment would grant a “license to discriminate” in the provision of child welfare services, allowing child welfare placing agencies that receive federal government funding to turn away qualified prospective parents based on the agency’s religious beliefs.”

Take Action now by calling you member of Congress and telling them to oppose this anti-LGBTQ amendment.

Families Belong Together

Thanks to everyone across the South who was part of Families Belong Together actions on June 30th. Here in Asheville, NC, more than 1,000 people gathered to speak out for an end to family separation and immediate reunification. Stay updated about actions you can take here. CSE is proud to be part of the Families Belong Together coalition.

Immigration rights and family rights are LGBTQ issues and we’re in this fight every step of the way. We’re calling to permanently end family separation and immediately reunify those that have been separated. Children and families deserve due process, not indefinite imprisonment. Children do not belong in baby cages and internment-like camps. Family incarceration is not the solution to family separation.
