HIGHLIGHTS

Liberation Bound Presente

NEW TPS for Central American and Haitian nationals

The climate crisis coupled with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires swift action by elected leaders. We call on the Biden-Harris administration to issue a new Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.

Liberation Bound Presente

Protect Immigrants in #First100Days

We’re encouraged by President Biden’s executive orders that will immediately end funding for the border wall and the Muslim travel bans. But there’s still more work to be done to dismantle the terrible policies that the former administration enacted over the past four years.

#DignidadLiteraria

#DignidadLiteraria is a network of committed Latinx writers and culture-makers who believe in the social and political power of wholly authentic Latinx voices and that it is the duty of the publishing industry to use its full power and privilege to combat the invisibility of Latinx authors, editors and executives in the U.S. publishing industry.
Private Prisons Victory

DEFUND AND ABOLISH PRIVATE PRISONS

VICTORY! Presente co-led an effort to force the biggest banks in the world to stop financing the private prison industry. To date, 8 banks, totaling more than $2.3 Billion has been pulled out of private prison financing! And we won’t stop until we #defund and #abolish the profit incentive to torture our communities.

Under the Trump admin we worked with a target on our backs. All three of our directors were put on a gov watchlist. Trump may be gone but the @CBPSanDiego agent who helped lead that surveillance effort in 2019 is now head of US Border Patrol.

Border patrol complaining now they have to treat migrants with some dignity & respect.

The acting BP chief "objected to a new directive to stop using the term 'alien' when referring to migrants, saying it would hurt agents' morale."

Boo hoo😢
