Support Alex be Released from detention! LGBTQ defense fund

Dear community member,

Alexander is a young, bright and sweet 19 year old transgender youth from Guatemala. She dreams of living, working, and studying in the United States. Alex has been detained in the Florence Service Processing Center since October 2011. Since Alex is transgender, she is more vulnerable and marginalized at the men’s facility where she is currently detained in. She has applied for political asylum on the basis of persecution due to her sexual orientation.

The good news is that in November, a judge granted her a bond for $5,000. Her family has fundraised $3,000—all Alex needs is $2,000 to be released while her asylum case is pending.

This is where we need your support!

Please take action and donate funds to have Alex released from detention. Alex must pay her bond by January 9th or risk prolonged detention. Your support will directly contribute to having one person no longer exposed to the systematic abuses LGBTQ prisoners face in immigration detention.
