Mission
The Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (QDEP), an Alternative-to-Detention program for queer, trans, and HIV+ immigrant detainees, asylees, and their families across the United States. QDEP supports folks in securing housing, food, education, travel, employment, healthcare, legal services, know-your-rights trainings, community organizing, and arts space! We also advocate around structural barriers our clients face. In short, we are committed to assisting folks in building lives outside of the detention system, and to queering dialog and work on immigration justice.
* All donations made to Queer Detainee Empowerment Project will be sent to their fiscal sponsor Center for Transformative Action.
