Save TPS Vigil and March

November 15, 2017, 6:00pm - November 15, 2017, 10:00pm

(Español abajo) Join the National TPS Alliance: TPS LA Coalition (UNITE HERE Local 11, SEIU-WW, LA County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, BAJI, Haitian Bridge, CARECEN, NDLON, CHIRLA,) at a rally and vigil to denounce the termination of TPS for Nicaraguans and stand with Haitians to demand a full 18-month renewal of TPS. We will meet the Federal Building: 200 N Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012-3304, United States; 6-8pm Let's continue to call out this injustice and build community across cultures with all TPS recipients. #SaveTPS - #ProtectTPS BACKGROUND: Temporary Protected Status is granted to countries facing devastating environmental disasters, civil war or political instability. More than half of El Salvadoran and Honduran TPS beneficiaries, as well as 16 percent of Haitian TPS beneficiaries, have lived in the United States for 20 years, according to a report by the Center for American Progress. At least 51,700 work in the construction industry, while many others work in the restaurant and food services industry, landscaping services, child day care services, and at grocery stores. In May of this year, Trump administration gave Haitian TPS holders 6 months to prepare to leave the United States, they are expected to announce a decision for Haiti’s TPS expiration status near Thanksgiving. They permanently terminated TPS status for Sudan and will end in November 2018. Meanwhile, the administration extended TPS for South Sudan through May 2019. ---------------------------------- Únase a la Alianza Nacional TPS: la Coalición de TPS Los Angeles (UNITE HERE Local 11, SEIU-WW, LA County of Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, BAJI, Haitian Bridge, CARECEN, NDLON, CHIRLA,) en una manifestación y vigilia para denunciar la finalización de TPS para nicaragüenses y apoyar a los haitianos para exigir una renovación completa de TPS por 18 meses. El local será el edificio federal: 200 N Los Angeles St, Los Ángeles, CA 90012-3304, Estados Unidos; 6-8 p.m. Sigamos repugnando a esta injusticia y construyamos una comunidad en todas las culturas con todos los benificiarios de TPS. #SaveTPS - #ProtectTPS ¿Qué es TPS? El Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS) se otorga a países que enfrentan devastadores desastres ambientales, guerras civiles o inestabilidad política. Más de la mitad de los beneficiarios de TPS son de El Salvador y Honduras, así como el 16 por ciento de los beneficiarios de TPS son de Haití. La mayoria de los benficiarios han vivido en los Estados Unidos durante 20 años, según un informe del Center for American Progress. Al menos 51,700 trabajan en la industria de la construcción, mientras que muchos otros trabajan en la industria de restaurantes y servicios de alimentos, servicios de jardinería, servicios de guardería infantil y en supermercados. Muchos son dueños de casa, y hay casi 300,000 ciudadanos americanos con padres benficiarios del TPS. En mayo de este año, la administración Trump otorgó a los titulares de TPS haitianos 6 meses para prepararse para abandonar Estados Unidos, y se espera que anuncien una decisión sobre el estado de expiración del TPS en Haití cerca del Día de Acción de Gracias. Terminaron permanentemente el estatus de TPS para Sudán y finalizarán en noviembre de 2018. Mientras tanto, la administración extendió el TPS para Sudán del Sur hasta mayo de 2019.

What is a Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?: Although over 300,000 persons from 10 countries benefit from this humanitarian relief established in the 1990s, the program is now facing TERMINATION, stripping our communities of legal status and tearing livelihoods apart. UndocuBlack Network teamed up with the TPS Alliance / Alianza TPS National Day Laborer Organizing Network Central American Resource Center (CARECEN-LA) to break it all down. We have to urge congress to pressure DHS for 1. extension of country protections and 2.a permanent solution. Will you help?

More than 1000 civilians were killed by Salvadoran troops in El Mozote and surrounding towns over several days during December 1982. Today's proceedings are a major step forward for the first human rights trial following the repeal of El Salvador's controversial amnesty law last summer.

and many many unaffiliated, autonomous individuals

State-based violence is not new to our Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Two Spirit and Queer communities, especially queer and trans Black, and Indigenous people. Our ancestors for centuries have been disrespected, ignored, caged, abused, and subject to deadly violence since the formation of the American national identity. Stories of family members disappearing in police custody, violent backlash and attacks to silence and suppress us, and twisted politicians using our bodies for political gain are all too familiar.

And while the new political realities in the US and the rise of fascism around the world have many calling for unity, bold action and even revolution, we continue to see the transphobia, misogyny, xenophobia, anti blackness and racism that is at the root of Trump's power reflected back to us in our own community and in the growing movement to resist Trump's agenda. This year is on track to be the most dangerous year yet for trans women of color — even more violent than 2016, and 2015 before that.

So far in 2017, seven of our sisters have lost their lives to horrific acts of violence. These Black and native trans women's lives were in jeopardy on multiple levels before November 8th and threats have only increased since. However, despite the hyper-visible outrage against anti-woman and anti-LGBT policies led and inspired by the Trump administration, the loss of Mesha Caldwell, Jaquarrius Holland, Chyna Doll Depree, JoJo Striker, Ciara McElveen, Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow, Tiara Richmond, and the calls for action from trans women in our community have been met with telling silence.

A report released Thursday morning by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) said that undocumented immigrants in the United States contribute around $11.74 billion in state and local taxes. The contributions come from a variety of taxes, including sales, excise, personal income and property taxes.

policy is informed policy," ITEP director of programs Meg Wiehe said via a press release. as the horrendous impact of breaking up families under a mass deportation policy should not be ignored, nor should policymakers overlook the significant contributions undocumented immigrants make to our state and local revenues and the economy."

"ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) occur in greater frequency among Latin American youth, specifically first-generation immigrant children. Studies also show that first-generation immigrant Latino youth are at higher risk of depression, anxiety and PTSD. This is in part caused by the constant stress and fear of deportation of themselves or family members.

These children suffer developmentally and educationally as well. They cannot access basic services such as early intervention, meal assistance or other government programs because their parents fear detection and deportation, even though a large proportion of these children are actually born in the United States and qualify for these programs. This results in even greater disparities between the Latin American community and the rest of the country." …

"While the majority of Haitian migrants who have arrived along the southern border are men, there are many cases like Denera's involving families that have been separated, said Guerline Josef, director of the Haitian Bridge Alliance in San Diego, an advocacy group.
"That is one of the main issues that we are having is the fact that a lot of the women and children that were released, their husbands and fathers were sent home or are still in detention," she said. "So basically the family units are being broken, so it becomes really hard for them to survive. They don't have that partner with them. They don't have the father to help out." …
