Trans and queer migrants face sexual and physical abuse and inhumane conditions in migratory detention in Arizona. Outside of detention they face economic and social justice and a cycle of criminalization. That is why the AZ QUIP – Arizona Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project and the Arcoíris Liberation Team fight for immediate liberation and longterm social justice for queer and trans migrants in Arizona.
#AZDispatch is a Netroots Nation project created to expose some of the most unjust practices in our current immigration system and to elevate the stories and voices of local activists fighting back against those practices. Click here to sign up for our AZDispatch Action list.
