The Organization for Refuge, Asylum, and Migration had a homecoming in the San Francisco Bay Area in an effort to drum up support and talk about its work. The LGBTQ refugee organization, founded in San Francisco in 2008, hosted its first local fundraiser to help queer refugees and learn about ORAM’s current efforts since 2019. The May 2 event was co-hosted by a lesbian couple who wished to remain anonymous and Frederick Hertz, a lawyer and former ORAM board member, and his husband. Hertz greeted the estimated 30 guests, telling them, “It’s not an organization that seeks a lot of publicity. It’s really about getting the work done.”
