There is NO humane way to detain immigrants 🖐🏽 Our Trans communities are particularly vulnerable to the injustices of our broken US im/migration policies & systems. We must #RiseUpAsOne to ensure #Not1More person's dignity & basic rights are compromised by hateful, anti-immigrant politics. Isa Noyola is a Translatina activist, a national leader in LGBTQ im/migrant rights movement and the Director of Programs at the Transgender Law Center. She works for the release of transgender women from ICE detention and an end to all deportations. #HereToStay #IsaNoyola #Trans #TransLatinx #TransLivesMatter #TransRights #Immigration #ImmigrantRights #ImmigrationReform #Adelanto #EndImmigrantDetetention #CloseImmigrantPrisons
Director of Programs at the Transgender Law Center, Noyola is fighting for a voice for translatinas within the LGBTQ community, and the U.S. as a whole. She provides legal assistance for transgender women in ICE custody, and is working to stop violence experienced by trans women of color. By giving translatinas a voice (think, a stripe on the flag), she believes that the LGBTQ community can better unite in fighting for equal rights for all.
