“JUSTICE 4 ROXSANA
Roxsana Hernandez was a Honduran transgender woman, seeking asylum in the U.S. She was repeatedly denied access to medical care she begged for and trans cellmates organized a hunger strike to get proper care. She ultimately died in custody less than three weeks after presenting herself for asylum, on May 25, 2018. Detention facilities continue violent human rights violations on detainees and many more have died after Roxsana, including trans immigrant from El Salvador, Johana Medina, and countless other detainees.”
Familia TQLM is a national political home for trans and queer Latinx peoples. We build a movement for trans and queer liberation as well as racial and immigrant justice. We currently facilitate the grassroots efforts of the #Justice4Roxsana campaign, along with our coalition partners Black, LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP) and the litigation team at Transgender Law Center is leading a lawsuit against all parties responsible for Roxsana's murder.
