At just 15, Claudette Colvin was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white woman.

Her story went largely untold — until historians revealed how Colvin paved the way for the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Let’s recognize her for the civil rights leader she was and is.

2020 has made it feel difficult to look to the future. The losses have been overwhelming, but we know that we can make a better future for ALL. Together.

#RootedInCommunity we can achieve #MigrantJustice

We did this. And now we have an opening. So let’s get back to work and make sure we never see children in cages again…
or families separated, migrants tortured, our asylum system gutted…etc.

It ends now. We #DontLookAway.

We can’t continue to advocate for immigrants rights if it does not include our black brothers & sisters. It’s not enough to say you stand in solidarity. It never was.

We have to proactively dismantle a system that & kills black & brown bodies.

#BlackLivesMatter RIP George Floyd

#DontLookAway 👀 Our gov’t cannot use #covid19 as an excuse to separate children & families. No family should be forced to choose between indefinite separation or detention during a pandemic. We demand @DHS_Wolf release these families now. #Families4Families @RAICESTEXAS

Detention is no place to be during a pandemic. With #Covid19 detained immigrants face an amplified threat. We cannot ignore them.

Our attorneys continue fighting for them. Will you?

☎️ Call @ICEgov @ 210-283-4711 & demand they #FreeThemAll. Families need to be #SafeAndTogether.

What is life like in immigrant detention during #COVID19?

We obtained recordings of 2 fathers trapped with their children at Karnes Detention Center in Texas. This is what ICE doesn’t want you to know.

Help us save lives. Demand that ICE #FreeThemAll.

Thought-provoking, soul-searching piece by @jherrerx collecting insights from @TheTinaVasquez & @aurabogado, among others, about when, if ever, it’s justifiable to share images of POC suffering state violence. https://www.cjr.org/first_person/carlos-gregorio-hernandez-vasquez.php via @cjr
Does @HolocaustMuseum have guidance?

Y’all really think this is the way to provoke and mobilize folks? By reinforcing the harmful ways this country speaks about our countries.
If you need a laugh to get you fighting the racist administration and it’s tactics against us you are a sad being. #mppisnojoke @RAICESTEXAS

There are 1,600 people sleeping in tents in Matamoros, a city the State Dept. lists as the highest level of danger for frequent kidnappings, murders, sexual assaults etc. Juana is one of them. She was sent back here w/her husband & 4 m/o baby, w/nothing but a bag of paperwork.
She tried to seek asylum in the US. CBP turned her away under Remain in Mexico, sending her back across the border as night fell—no aid, no instructions on how to survive, little idea why this was happening. The family was shocked to be sent back. They hadn't prepared for this.
Her baby has a fever & no access to medical services. They had nowhere to sleep when they arrived in the tent encampment. It was only b/c volunteers & fellow migrants found them food & a tent that they've been able to survive. The infrastructure isn't there to care for them.
This is the daily reality of some 50,000 people returned to Mexico under Trump. They're told to come back in a few months for a court date, no way to speak to a lawyer in the meantime, forced to survive in a country not their own, in often dangerous border towns.
We're doing this to pregnant women like Maria, who's trying to care for a family, dealing with pregnancy, & sleeping in a tent. She was kidnapped in Mexico & then sent back to it. She tried to seek aid in this country & she was turned away.
RAICES @RAICESTEXASMaria is 27. She fled Honduras w/her husband & two kids. Gangs threatened her brother, endangering her family. On her way to seek asylum, she was kidnapped in Mexico. Her father paid thousands to release her. Now she's back in Mexico, courtesy of the US. Oh, & she's pregnant. twitter.com
We're doing this to trans women like Natasha, who was violently attacked in her homeland & suffers anti-trans abuse daily in Mexico. She was given little chance to explain why she'd be in danger if she was returned to Mexico.
RAICES @RAICESTEXASOur team just returned from Matamoros, where there are 1,600 people sleeping in tents by the border b/c they have been returned under Remain in Mexico. Hundreds of people in a sprawling tent encampment w/no infrastructure—mothers, children, ordinary people. People like Natasha. twitter.com
We're doing this to *tens of thousands* of people—families, women, children, anyone who tries to seek asylum *as guaranteed by both US & international law.* They're in limbo in a foreign land, abandoned by us. MPP—Remain in Mexico—must end. #StopMPP
