A poignant, moving memoir and urgent call to action for immigration justice by a Nigerian asylee and global gay rights and immigration activist Edafe Okporo.On the eve of Edafe Okporo’s twenty-sixth birthday, he was awoken to a violent mob outside his window in Abuja, Nigeria. The mob threatened his life after discovering the secret Edafe had been hiding for years—that he is a gay man. Left with no other choice, he purchased a one-way plane ticket to New York City and fled for his life. Though America had always been painted to him as a land of freedom and opportunity, it was anything but when he arrived just days before the tumultuous 2016 Presidential Election.



The Texas Compassionate Cities are rallying donations for the Uvalde Love Project. As compassionate cities in Texas we have decided to join together to gather donations throughout our networks and combine all the collected donations to represent unity in our support for Uvalde in the wake of the tragic Robb Elementary School shooting on May 24, 2022.

Please donate right away. We'd like all donations by November 30, 2022 or before!
Then, we will provide all the collected funds as of that date to the project. Learn more here to donate!
