SAN FRANCISCO — The National Center for Lesbian Rights, is leading a group of LGBT organizations, community centers, clinics and AIDS charities in contributing $75,000 to a fund to help support the legal fees of adolescents born outside of the U.S. but raised here after being brought here as infants and toddlers.

A new program developed by the White House called “Deferred Action for Childhood arrivals,” allows these youths known as “Dreamers” after the “DREAM Act,” to apply for work permits. The money from NCLR and groups like New York’s Gay Men’s Health Crisis will help pay the fees for these permits.
