If you are lovingly committed to creating a world free of violence and state terror please consider supporting our dear friend Mariana, a queer asylum seeker and survivor recently released from ICE detention.
If you are fiercely and lovingly committed to creating a world free of violence and state terror please consider becoming a monthly sustaining donor of this campaign to ensure that our dear friend Mariana, a queer asylum seeker and survivor recently released from ICE detention, cannot only survive, but thrive.
While we have managed to raise enough money to get Mariana out of the extremely violent and abusive situations she was previously in when we first met her, it is a long road towards stability and healing. She has received a humbling outpour of support over the past few months that has inspired all of us to continue reaching out to our networks, to you all, who we know can and will continue showing up in more long-term and consistent ways. Devastating losses due to COVID-19 and the hurricanes in Honduras, past experiences of violence, disaster capitalism, neocolonialism, and consistent terrorizing by ICE all continue to pose constant threats to Mariana and her family’s safety and well-being. She is currently awaiting the approval of her work permit but ICE bureaucracy moves slowly, more so under the constraints of COVID-19, and in the meantime she is depending on community support to sustain her.
Your monthly donation is:
1.) material support to keep Mariana fed, housed, and healthy
2.) love and solidarity that will ensure her ability to feel nourished, connected, and rested in the ways she needs
The giving levels featured are there to give folks an idea of the funds she needs access to month to month, feel free to customize your donation amount based on your financial ability.
