Migration and the LGBTQ+ Community

Speakers: Sarah Sánchez
Session Time: 2:50 PM – 3:50 PM CT

Session Description: Migration to the United States can be a traumatic experience for everyone as this country continues to deny protections and due process; however, a group that faces even more severe backlash is the LGBTQ+ community. During this session you will learn about the specific challenges that many in the LGBTQ+ community face not only during their migration journey, but also as they seek sponsorship and a new life in the U.S.
