I am a Jewish lesbian woman who is married to an immigrant woman of Cuban and Chinese decent. The election of the homophobic, racist, xenophobic and misogynist we have in Trump and VP-Elect Pence who advocates conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth, has stuck utter terror into the heart of progressives, people of color and those who love us.
Today you helped Thomas who escaped from Uganda and who has been traveling for more than a week straight. Thomas arrives in San Francisco late tonight, all alone in a strange city with no money having not eaten in 2 days. He is exhausted and hungry but he is strong!
Because of you, Thomas will have a safe place to sleep tonight and food in his belly for tomorrow he will accessing the much needed services and begin the process of re-building his life free from persecution.
