¡No permitiremos que la administración Trump ataque nuestra comunidad!

CARECEN rechaza los ataques racistas y xenófobos del presidente electo Donald Trump. Prometemos continuar protegiendo los derechos de la comunidad inmigrante que son una parte vital de la vida de este país. Nos comprometemos a defender las protecciones que la Constitución otorga a todas las personas que viven en este país. Denunciamos el odio que se ha venido normalizando durante la reciente temporada electoral. No permitiremos que comunidades de color, mujeres, grupos religiosos,  personas LGBTQ+ y personas indocumentadas sean víctimas de ideologías racistas, sexistas, yhomofóbicas que resultaron en la elección de un neo-fascista. Queremos que nuestra comunidad sepa que no están solos. Sabemos que estos tiempos son difíciles, pero venceremos. Nuestra historia es una de resistencia y sobrevivencia.   Pedimos su apoyo en esta lucha por la protección de nuestras comunidades.
