The Immigrant Rights Project (IRP)is a project of Queers for Economic Justice.

The project works to advocate for the rights of LGBT immigrants and has been organizing to put immigrant rights at the center of the LGBT movement and queer rights at the center of the immigrant rights movement.
IRP has organized a coalition of LGBT immigrant rights organizations across the country to put together the first national queer vision statement on immigration. Currently the project is also engaged in advocacy efforts to lift the HIV Ban on Immigrants, and in the State of New York, advocating with Eliot Spitzer to reduce discriminatory drivers’ license requirements and for New York to opt out of the harsh federal proof of identification laws.
