Rise up with refugees! Rise up with the hunger strikers at the Adelanto detention center! Save the date: Oct 7th and join us for some beautiful music from Ellen Oléria (artist and musician from Brazil) and other community (tba) as we stand in solidarity with Adelanto refugees who have been detained. All proceeds will go towards the release of Haitian and Central American refugee hunger strikers from Adelanto Detention Center!

Their stories: The hunger strike leaders include Haitian and Central American hunger strikers, who were detained after applying for asylum at the conclusion of a month-long caravan of refugees through Mexico in April and May, as well as a representative of the detained Haitian contingent that joined the hunger strike in July. The strike was organized to protest against the inhumane conditions of the detention centers and to demand their freedom. This concert is to help pay part of the average $3100 required to bond out the refugees and support them in continuing their anti-detention organizing.

Refuse Fascism Los Angeles Organizing Meeting

August 16, 2017, 6:30pm - August 16, 2017, 11:30pm

YOU are needed at this meeting to organize and prepare for the upcoming Los Angeles Regional Conference, taking place this Saturday, August 19th from 1-7 pm: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! In The Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept A Fascist America! Register for the conference here: refusefascism.org/this-fascist-regime-must-be-driven-out-you-are-needed-ways-to-act/regional-meet... An excerpt from the Regional Conferences to Plan for November 4th: "At this conference, we will be getting organized for nation-wide protests that begin November 4th and continue – night after night and day after day, growing from thousands to hundreds of thousands to millions – until our demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! Millions feel that the Trump/Pence Regime is truly a nightmare and ache with the question of how to stop this unrelenting horror. The stakes are nothing less than the future of humanity and the planet itself. Who will end this nightmare? We will. Only the determined struggle of millions of people acting together with courage and conviction can drive this regime from power." WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE FOLLOWING RECENT DEVELOPMENTS: - The escalation and nuclear crisis between the United States and North Korea, with both sides, the Trump regime and the Kim Jong Un regime threatening war or even nuclear strikes. But who is the real aggressor and which side has already wiped out more people on the Korean peninsula? The USA by far. About 200,000 people were incinerated by US military airmen who dropped nuclear bombs in two cities in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the close of World War II this month, seven decades ago. Even if NK can successfully deploy one nuke, the USA has over 1,000 times the nuclear firepower. And six decades ago the US military wiped out over 3 million Korean people in the Korean war. - The massive Neo Nazi and KKK "Unite the Right" rally in Charleston and the counter protests that took place (as a part of the consolidation of fascism), the white supremacist who plowed into a crowd of counter protesters with his car, killing one, Heather Heyer and injuring several others, and the numerous other brutal assaults on peaceful counter protesters, as well as the massive, beautiful and righteous marches and vigils that took place in solidarity with the counter protests.

"Criminals only" right? ...

It saddens us to inform you that Diego and Lizandro Claros were deported today. Claros brothers exemplified exactly who we want in this country. ICE refused to listen to our calls for justice and continued with their unjust agenda. This administration and DHS are lying about their deportation machine, saying it is targeted at criminals and focused on public safety, when in reality they are just breaking apart families and undermining the future of our country. Thank you to all who showed support through these last days. It might not seem like it made a difference but it did. Thanks again to Bethesda Academy, United We Dream, Senator Chris Van Hollen and the thousands of others who took action to help the Claros brothers. #StopDeportations

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." …

"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." …
