Webinar for young LGBT immigrants on deferred action

Task Force staff rallied with Dream Act activists in front of the White House on the day of the announcement.

On August 15, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security rolled out its new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which President Obama announced in the Rose Garden two months ago.

Under DACA, eligible undocumented youth under the age of 31 may be given a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called “deferred action.” Deferred action will be valid for two years and may be renewed at the end of the two years. Individuals who receive deferred action will receive employment authorization.

Join a webinar/call hosted by the National Council of La Raza, Immigration Equality, National Center for Lesbian Rights, Lambda Legal and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to find out if you are eligible to apply for deferred action and employment authorization. Find out how to apply and resources available to assist you your application.
