HELPING LBGTQ+ REFUGEES
CASA DE LUZ SD is a 501(c)3 sister organization of Casa de Luz TJ a collective house open to LBGTQ+ refugees who left their home country in search of a better life. Casa de Luz SD raises money for Casa de Luz TJ so they can offer a safe haven for people who lived in fear of persecution because of their sexual orientation or gender identification.
Trans, lesbian, gay & bisexual people are fleeing from all over the world to escape "epidemic levels of violence" and threats by criminal gangs and security forces. Over 2,900 were killed in the past 5 years just in Central America.
These are the most vulnerable refugees entering the US.
