The opening of Con Cámaras y Sin Papeles was amazing! Thanks to everyone who dropped by to experience this installation and witness the magic that happens when undocumented storytellers take back their own narratives. The installation is free and open to the public through Sunday, June 24. #Repost @laliff_ ・・・

After Trump's trans military ban, the media was filled with patriotic images of trans military service.
We understand the trans military ban as part of a larger strategy to build power by scapegoating trans people as dangerous threats and costly burdens. But the solution is not to endorse the military. The US military is the largest source of violence in the world, including vast environmental racism and endemic sexual assault. Veterans do not get the services they need from the VA. Recruiters lie about military benefits to recruit poor people & people of color. 22 veterans commit suicide every day. .
.
This isn't a judgement or attack on any individuals in the military. No one should have to join the military to try and get medical care, a job or an education, or to escape abuse. We are uplifting our communities’ long history of opposing war & building solutions for real peace, security, and justice.

Gender + sexual liberation for everyone means an end to war & US imperialism. .

Thank you to Dean Spade, @dorimidnight , @lewispants , Hope Dector + so many other folks on this squad.

“We Make Kids Disappear” - I.C.E. (Immigration & Customs Enforcement)
This isn’t an immigration issue. This is a humanitarian crisis.
#INDECLINE

We had the chance to show Edward James Olmos our installation at @laliff_ as we added finishing touches. Con Cámaras y Sin Papeles honors undocumented filmmakers over the past decade. Come check it out! Scroll 👈🏽 for deets! #LALIFFart #LALIFF #undocufilmthursday

What does today’s Executive Order entail for the future of immigrant children and families? 🤔 While children may no longer be separated from their parents, asylum seekers will continue to be criminalized & detained. Today’s executive order turns the public outrage to end family separation into indefinite detention for immigrant families. ‘Family detention is NOT the solution,’ Camille Mackler, ‎director of Immigration Legal Policy at the New York Immigration Coalition, reiterated. ‘I’ve been to these family detention facilities; they are prisons.’ FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER AND FREE!

#StandWithRefugees // Today we honor the resilience of refugee communities on #WorldRefugeeDay. 🌟 In ‘The Best We Could Do’, @teabuoy crafts a multi-dimensional memoir based on her family’s experiences of displacement due to the Vietnam War. Through graphic storytelling, Bui is able to uncover family histories and layer narratives to reveal fully complex + human characters- challenging prevailing media stereotypes of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American immigrant experiences. #RefugeesWelcome #Displacement #VietnamWar #ThiBui #TheBestWeCouldDo #GraphicNovels #ImmigrantFamilies #VietnameseAmerican #SoutheastAsia

The portrait of Arundhati Roy, as illustrated by @shyamagolden . “The illustration depicts 3 causes she fought for: the Naxalists she marched through the jungle with, the villages flooded by the governments dams, and she sits in the Polkhran desert nuclear testing site as a reference to her opposition of India's nuclear activity.”
//\\
\\//
Although perhaps most known for her novel, “The God of Small Things”, Roy has continuously made an impact via her unwavering nonviolent approach to her activism, particularly in her support for Kashmiri independence and her relentless advocacy protesting the Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat (and others). \\//
\\//
She is this week’s environmental and social activist highlight, and as promised the 2-in-1 feature via @shyamagolden’s work ❤️🌟 (The illustration was originally drawn for @theatlantic)
