This Pride month, President Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas must #EndTransDetention. 

As people hit the streets to celebrate after a year of isolation due to the pandemic we must remember that silence does not save us, we save us! 
Trans leaders like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera made this month of resistance possible but we know the fight for the safety of our communities isn’t over. 

Trans migrant people are often fleeing persecution in their home countries and instead of finding safety, they face abuse, cruelty, detention, and deportation at the hands of ICE. 

This Pride month, we call on Biden & Mayorkas to IMMEDIATELY release ALL transgender people, people living with HIV, and people with medical conditions from ICE custody.  

Victoria Arellano, Roxsana Hernandez, and Johana Medina are three trans women who died because of willful ICE negligence. No more deaths of our people!

We also demand the Biden Administration ensures trans people have the resources to live safely after being released post detention, including access to safe housing and employment so that trans people can survive and thrive.

Celebrate our existence as trans, queer people and #EndTransDetention now.
 
Join us in resistance this Pride month!
