Next week comes the moment so many LGBT philanthropists have worked for: arguments before the United States Supreme Court on the question of gay marriage. In two separate cases, the Court will consider first California's Prop 8 and then the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Both the Pride Foundation and the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund are publicizing their efforts to support the LGBT Dreamers Fund. Last year, President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The idea is to assist undocumented individuals who were brought to the United States as children in becoming legal residents and eventually citizens. These young people are commonly called "Dreamers," a reference to the Dream Act.
