HRC petitions

New petitions from the Human Rights Campaign -- please sign and pass on:

1. In the U.S., the legal spouses of federal employees qualify for health insurance coverage. Ask your rep to cosponsor the Domestic Partner Benefits and Obligations Act, which would grant the same coverage to same-sex partners of federal employees:

2. Current U.S. immigration law does not allow citizens or permanent residents to apply for immigration benefits for their same-sex partners. Ask your rep to cosponsor the Uniting American Families Act, which would amend immigration law to allow Americans to sponsor their same-sex foreign partners for immigration benefits:

The latter issue affects good friends of ours, one of whom is an American citizen, the other not. Guess which one has been able to visit family in Peru?
