Join CQA today from 6pm to 7:30 pm in Lerner 569 for a conversation with the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project about the vital work they’re doing right here in NYC.
“The Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (QDEP), is an alternative to detention program (ATD) for queer/trans/HIV+ immigrant detainees, undocumented folks, and asylums seekers and their families in New York City. QDEP assists folks in securing structural, health/wellness, legal, and emotional support and services. QDEP works to advocate around the barriers that our members face as well around limitations due to immigration status, race, sexuality, and gender identity. We are committed to assisting folks in building lives outside of the detention system, to keeping queer families together by demanding an end to deportations, and to queering dialogue and work on immigration justice.
QDEP will be speaking about who we are, who we serve, and what we do to change the political climate for queer/trans detainees & immigrants in the United States.”
Pastries from Hungarian Pastry Shop will be served. Lerner 569 is a physically accessible space.
