GSA leaders, you kept your promise: thousands of you signed my petition to the President to free Yordy Cancino and all LGBT youth from ICE detention.
So yesterday, I kept mine: I delivered your signatures to the White House, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and several members of Congress.
This page will be updated regularly with news and information about events and actions to #FreeYordy. Read about Yordy and sign the petition here!
ICE has given Yordy excuse after excuse to delay his case and keep him in detention. We are mobilizing to deliver our petition to President Obama in DC and ICE in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 24th! To join the LA rally, go to the Facebook event.
This post is the second in a series covering the learning exchanges being held across the country between LGBTQ, racial justice, and educational justice youth organizations with funding from the Just and Fair Schols Fund. Read the first post from Missouri GSA Network here!
In January, Missouri GSA Network had the privilege of kicking off a series of learning exchanges between LGBTQ, racial justice, and educational justice youth organizations across the country. We traveled south on 55 to visit with an amazing organization, BreakOUT!, which fights the criminalization of LGBTQ youth of color in New Orleans.
