¿Qué hacemos?

El Queer Immigrant Justice Project (QIJP) de UnLocal proporciona LGBTQ+ afirmando la representación legal para los inmigrantes LGBTQ+. QIJP aborda las necesidades interseccionales de los inmigrantes que se identifican como parte de la comunidad LGBTQ+ vulnerable a ser víctimas de delitos, abusos, trata de personas y otras formas de violencia.

#TogetherWeWin

Podemos ayudar

QIJP proporciona servicios legales gratuitos para cambios de nombre legal, cambios de marcadores de género, representación migratoria afirmativa y defensiva, y también proporciona referencias a organizaciones de servicios sociales, así como educación y participación basadas en la comunidad.

Pensamos en tí

QIJP aborda la realidad de que los inmigrantes LGBTQIA+, en particular los inmigrantes negros y latinos y TGNC, experimentan niveles desproporcionadamente altos de discriminación y violencia a nivel interpersonal y estatal, proporcionando servicios legales holísticos y educación comunitaria. QIJP representa a los inmigrantes queer en los tribunales de inmigración y en la oficina de asilo, conectándolos con la atención médica, la vivienda, la terapia, el apoyo de transición y más. Colaborando con una variedad de socios comunitarios, QIJP trabaja para ayudar a los inmigrantes LGBTQIA+ a asentarse y desarrollar un sistema de apoyo y afirmación cultural. QIJP proporciona un salvavidas para los inmigrantes queer que huyen de sus países de origen para que puedan vivir segura y libremente en los Estados Unidos.
