New guides from the National team:
Tell ICE to release Griselda
The night of November 15, ICE officials retaliated against asylum-seeking mother Melvin Griselda Cruz Lopez by transferring her from the T. Don Hutto detention center in Taylor to Laredo after she spoke out about her unjust detention.
Griselda was separated from her 5-year-old U.S.-citizen daughter Samantha when her abusive ex called immigration over a year ago.
Submit a public comment to stop Trump’s attack on immigrant families
On October 10, the Trump administration formally announced a proposed regulation that would dramatically broaden the “public charge” test that has been a part of federal immigration law for decades. The new rule could force immigrant families to choose between permanent legal status and their ability to access basic needs like healthy food, safe housing, and health care. Take action by submitting your public comment on or before December 10.

Funding the Fight
The further we get from the election, the more we see how significant our gains were. The more we see how significant our gains were, the more we realize just how much farther we have to go just to get back to even, with all that Trump has done to our country—and “back to even” isn’t good enough for our marginalized communities.
But now, with the tremendous gains that we saw in the election, we can also see a path forward to celebrate, protect, and expand democracy and human rights to drive justice, equity, and inclusion.
We’ve got a long way to go. Go with us. Help us get there by making a gift to Indivisible Austin today.
