Today is bittersweet. Tonight I leave for Boston to start this crazy thing called adulthood. Though living at home has been bumpy at some points I’m so glad I did it because I got to be with my family. Sometimes when you’re young and in college you forget how important family is. You forget that there is more to life then partying, late nights, and friends. That your family has been there through everything and they aren’t going anywhere. These incredible people have had a huge in part in the young passionate adult I have become and I thank them for their strength, love, and support. I love you all very much and this isn’t good bye but see you later
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
