When: Thursday March 11, 2021 12pm-1pm EST

Join Rainbow Railroad in partnership with the Center for American Progress at 12 noon EST for an insightful discussion on what we can expect from the Biden administration with respect to LGBTQI migrant policy.
The past four years have compromised the United States’ role as as a destination country for displaced LGBTQI people fleeing persecution from state-sanctioned violence. The Biden Administration, through a sweeping memorandum, is signalling a new approach. Will it work?
