DAY 3: TODAY WE ARE HOSTING A SOCIAL MEDIA STORM TO PUT PRESSURE ON ICE. Seeking asylum is a human right, which means everyone should be allowed to enter another country to seek asylum. Not denied several times like Alejandra. ICE has no reason to keep her in detention. We need to #FreeAlejandra and allow her to do the amazing activist work she has done for years in EL SALVADOR. Today, we will host a social media storm ALL DAY, with focuses on 11AM PST and 1PM PST. We will tag ICE directly and let them know about Alejandra's case and why she deserves to be free. Can you take a couple minutes to post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram about Alejandra and tag @ICEgov? Check our story for more info.

DAY 2: CALLS TO CONGRESS. Community pressure is important and we were so glad to see so many people calling yesterday. Today, we ask you call your state reps and inform them about Alejandra's case and ask they send a letter or call DHS / the ICE office in Albuquerque. Good opportunity to learn you who your rep is in this government system. 👀 Follow the instructions in the first photo and recite call scripts in the 2nd and 3rd. We need to put pressure at the top and let all of the US know about Alejandra. Again, msg us with any questions!! #FREEALEJANDRA

translatinacoalition

DAY 1: CALLS TO ICE. You will likely reach their office voicemail, then read the script in the 2nd photo. These people can determine whether or not Alejandra is released! Please call if able and message us with any questions. #FREEALEJANDRA

We are still continuing our campaign to #FreeAlejandra. We have been doing a lot of work internally and putting pressure on ICE to demand the release of Alejandra Barrera, a trans woman who has been detained in Cibola Detention Facility in New Mexico for over a year and a half. We have made significant progress. We have re-filed a stay of removal to keep Alejandra in the US and have managed to put pressure on ICE to delay her deportation several times. SHE IS SO CLOSE TO GETTING FREE!!! Now, we are calling for another week of action to #FreeAlejandra starting JULY 1ST. We need to show ICE that she has community support here on the outside when she is released. We are asking you to support as we reach the final push to have Alejandra released. Any support you can offer would be amazing. Stay tuned for call scripts and templates for each day.

We marched in pride yesterday and brought attention to the state and governmental violence our community continues to face. We were censored by both LAPride and ABC7. We were told to put our signs away. Told that we should be celebrating. Pride reminded us that there is so much to be done, even within our own community. But we wont stop bringing attention to the injustices our community is facing. Okay! . . .

#Repost @labamby - I wonder how are people celebrating Trans Lives in this #Pride month when members of our community, continue to be murdered in different ways by systems in place and how many people in #Power just give us #LipService and many of us forget about the rest of our #transsiblings. Many of us think that just because we get a job at an organization and we got to be in worthless planning groups we claim that we are activists. Many of us also think that just because we get to a better place in our society that the issues that #TransPeople face are not our issues any longer when we come also from a broken community. Many of us are still broken but we pretend to be ok and we get our ego fed by putting our own people down. Let's be truthful to ourselves so that we can be truthful to others! #StopTheBullshit and if you have more than others give a little, a smile goes a long way! A shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, a hug. Acts of kindness let people know that people are valuable. It's time to stop the bullshit, no more lip service support our Trans Siblings for us to be in a better place in our society! I know that every where I will go will bring my #TransLatinaPower and make sure that I continue to understand that I have a commitment to all my Trans Siblings because i know that #TransLivesMatter

A trans woman has died in ICE custody on the first day of pride month, & the larger LGBTQ+ community will continue to ignore the violence trans immigrants face. Johana was from El Salvador, she passed in El Paso, Texas. ICE is killing our people. Real queer and trans liberation means protecting and saving our trans immigrant siblings. Rest in Power, amor. . . . Una mujer trans ha muerto bajo la custodia de ICE el primer día del mes del Pride, y la comunidad LGBTQ+ continuará ignorando la violencia que enfrentan los inmigrantes trans. Johana era de El Salvador, ella murio en El Paso, Texas. ICE está matando a nuestra gente. Liberación trans y queer significa proteger y salvar a nuestros hermanes trans inmigrantes.

Art by @vrye 💕 Our community is under attack. One of the biggest issues in the Latinx community, and society in general, is anti-blackness. And that comes in the form of not reacting to the injustices our Black Trans sisters are continuously facing. We need to stand up, support, and hold space for Black trans people, especially Black trans womn and femmes. We love you Dana Martin, Michelle Simone, Muhlaysia Booker, Claire Legato, and Ashanti Carmon. #SayHerName There will be solidarity and healing events happening later this week in LA, keep on the look out. #TransPeopleDeservetoLive #wewillnotbeerased! #shutitdown #trans #queer #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #non-binary #gendernonconforming #boyslikeus #transwoman #transmen #transdaily #lgbtq #transpride #transgender #blacktranslove

May Day, which has become an international movement day that recognizes the intersection between workers and immigrants rights movements, tends to isolate and forget about the specific experiences of Trans immigrants in both the workplace and society in general. This May Day we ask that you center these experiences in your rallies today, and call to #FreeAlejandra, a TransLatin@ woman who is STILL being held in immigration detention in New Mexico. We have delayed her deportation significantly and we cannot let down pressure. We need Congress to know that her life is on the line and that she needs to be free now! Here are the ways you can help to #FreeAlejandra today: 1) Bring visibility to #FreeAlejandra by sharing graphics and facts during the occurring May Day rallies happening today, graphics can be used here from our page or we can email them to you. 2) Call Zoe Lofgren, who is the chair of the Immigration Subcommittee of the House Judiciary: (202) 225-3072. She is the one who will need to contact ICE for a stay of removal for Alejandra. Call script above. 3) Attend our rally TODAY in Los Angeles at 7pm after the May Day rallies. It will take place on the South Side steps of City Hall. Thanks so much for your support so far. We really appreciate it.

We have been in contact with elected officials, ICE staff, and other partner organizations and are putting pressure on these systems to get her free.

[Include a personal experience or story as to why Alejandra is important to you] We understand that Alejandra's rights may have been violated by the Department of Homeland Security and we urge you to stop her deportation while that is determined.

Help us #FreeAlejandra from ICE Detention! Right now is a critical time as Alejandra can be deported at any time. She has just been denied parole for the 4th time and we must make sure that we stop her deportation. Do you care about the safety and dignity of Transgender Latina Immigrants? We need your help putting pressure on ICE and elected officials to #FreeAlejandra and stop her deportation. Alejandra is the longest detained trans woman in the Cibola County Correctional Center . She is a transgender Latina immigrant who was forced to flee El Salvador due to discrimination and violence, her home country in which she has spent years fighting for the respect and dignity of transgender people. Alejandra’s situation is not unique; there are many more transgender people seeking asylum in the United States who are stuck waiting indefinitely in detention centers where they are at risk of ill-treatment because of their gender identity, medical needs, or trauma they have endured. This is how you can help (SWIPE LEFT): Make calls today to congressional officials and ICE staff, who can determine the future of Alejandra’s life. The contact information to these targets are here: CONGRESS: Senator Tom Udall CALL: (202) 224-6621 Senator Martin Heinrich CALL: (202) 224-5521 Congressperson Deb Haaland CALL: (202) 225-6316 Congressperson Xochitl Torres Small CALL: (202) 225-2365 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE): Head of the Albuquerque Office, Bill Jepsen CALL: (505) 452-4801

TODAY, April 2nd, we launch a national campaign to #FreeAlejandra for her birthday. Today she turns 44. We have been supporting her directly for the past couple of months. We need ICE to free her now! Sign the petition in our bio! Alejandra Barrera is the longest detained trans woman in Cibola Detention Facility in New Mexico. She is a transgender Latina immigrant who was forced to flee El Salvador due to discrimination and violence, her home country in which she has spent years fighting for respect and dignity of transgender people. Upon leaving El Salvador, Alejandra was detained and placed in Cibola detention facility in New Mexico. Often, transgender migrants are criminalized for fleeing violence and seeking safety in a new country and place into an immigration system that further exposes us to mistreatment. Alejandra did not choose to migrate to the US for leisure, on top of the daily discrimination, she faced extortion and attacks, including sexual assault by a gang, and by the El Salvadoran military. All of this forced her to leave and seek a new life in the US. These compounding factors are overlooked by our current immigration system, as the US focuses on punitive approaches to immigration rather than offering support and safety. She was denied asylum in June of 2018. Since leaving El Salvador, Alejandra has not had the opportunity to rebuild her life. Instead, the US government has been keeping her detained since the November of 2017, and has denied her request to be released on parole while waiting for the decision of an immigration judge on her asylum case. Additionally, they are not providing her with access to adequate medical care and she needs treatment now. Alejandra’s situation is not unique; there are many more transgender people seeking asylum in the United States, who are stuck waiting indefinitely in detention centres where they are at risk of ill-treatment because of their gender identity, medical needs, or trauma they have endured. RIGHT NOW, Alejandra needs your help. Sign the petition in our bio and demand that ICE grant Alejandra parole and improve the treatment of people awaiting decisions on their asylum claims.

Through her work, she taps into the healing abilities that performance art offers both on and off stage. She believes that by utilizing the radical potential of movement and song as vehicles for change we can reach a destination of collective rejuvenation and transformation. Her understanding of our world has been shaped by her unique positionality as a Black Trans Woman, rooting her in the understanding that change is only possible when a shift in power structures occurs. And this is where her work lies, as a relayer of information about how this change can happen in ways that sustainably uplift disenfranchised peoples - namely black trans femmes. Due to the intense adversity she faces, Davia is deeply invested in offering her skills and knowledge to the efforts of creating more opportunities for people like her to be given revered positions of power in our society.

Únase a nosotros para nuestro lanzamiento y recepción mientras presentamos el #TransPolicyAgenda y conozca las formas en que puede participar en el movimiento para mejorar las condiciones de nuestra gente. Comida y bebidas estarán disponibles. The California Endowment se encuentra en 1000 Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. La estación de metro más cercana a esta ubicación es Union Station. Preguntas?
