Several organizations have taken steps over the summer to raise awareness about immigration reform and push legislation. The National Center for Transgender Equality brought over 100 people to Capitol Hill in June to advocate for reform and launched an online August Recess Action Center that provides tools for people to get in touch with members of Congress. The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance organized its members to send 2,000 postcards to members of the House of Representatives to show their support, and it launched a campaign called "Uncovering Our Stories" to amplify LGBT Asian and Pacific Islander voices. Immigration Equality recently launched its LGBTforCIR national campaign to connect LGBT and immigration reform advocates in order to broaden the movement.
