Week 3: February 03–09
Move Beyond Borders
We live in a society of borders--geographical, sociological, and psychological. Migrants cross borders to build a better life for their families; same-gender couples navigate the boundaries of conventionally accepted love; and transgender individuals challenge the division of societally-defined gender. Some of us must reconcile our overlapping identities, and others must cross borders to embrace those we once considered “other.” Let us explore how we can break down these arbitrary barriers to achieve a more loving society.

“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.”
– Matthew 25:35
While new Department of Homeland Security guidelines provide much needed relief for many binational LGBTQ families, this is only a temporary and incomplete solution.
Ask your members of Congress to include the Uniting American Families Act in comprehensive immigration reform and help keep binational LGBTQ families together. Click here to take action.
Action for Families:
Draw a picture that illustrates the saying “Love Makes A Family”. Write around the edges all the things that families can do together.
