Time to stop deportation on our families, and keep us together. Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and Intersectional Justice NOW!
Marriage Equality is now here in Minnesota! Today Minnesota senate just passed marriage equality, and now the next step is Gov. Dayton’s signature, which he already gave his word that if it shows up on his desk, he will sign it! Minnesota the 12th state where same-sex couples could legally get married now!
It was an incredible experience to be at the Capital this past Thursday on May 9 to support and stand up for Marriage Equality.
The Minnesota House of Representatives voted 75-59 to extend the freedom to marry to same-sex couple!!!
We’re almost there Minnesota but were not just done yet. We now must do everything to get our Senators to vote Yes on Monday!

With relentless efforts of fundraising and writing scholarship letters, Mari (left), Linda (middle), and Chong (right) were able to attend Rootscamp 2012 with NOI and meet various of great organizers from all across the U.S doing great organizing work. We all had a great experience learning from organizers from all over the US to debrief about 2012 Election and campaigns. We also made plans for next steps in organizing for 2013. Through the intense weekend, we were able to take care of ourselves and enjoyed the beautiful sight of Washington D.C.
