Although Trump signed a motion to end family separation along the U.S.-Mexico border yesterday, thousands of children are still being detained in detention centers where they are being held subject to inhumane conditions. In the fight against this, Voto Latino is assembling a rally at Tornillo, TX, the site of the first tent city to house migrant children. Here's how you can get involved: Join The March The Voto Latino rally meets in Tornillo, TX on Sunday, June 24th at 9am. See their site at stopseparation.org for...
It is commonly known that Pride started with the 1969 Stonewall Inn Riots against police brutality. What is often left out of this narrative, including in the film reenactment, is that it was spearheaded by two transgender sex workers of color—Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. According to the Global Network for Sex Work Projects (NSWP), the Stonewall Inn was commonly raided by the police because it was a notorious hangout for sex workers, trans people of color and other marginalized people. Marsha P. Johnson was...
According to Her Jacket, Melania Doesn’t Care About Immigrant Children Further proving that the White House is spiraling into a weird circus act, First Lady Melania Trump wore a jacket that said “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” to board a plane to visit immigrant children detained in Texas. There are always new lows in the Trump administration. In response, Wildfang, a clothing brand founded and run by women, has released a shirt that says "I REALLY CARE, DON'T YOU" with all proceeds going to RAICES,...
In early May, Jeff Sessions announced the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance policy” for immigrants seeking asylum. A month later, officials with the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that 1,995 children had been separated from their families at the border, a number that continued to increase to over 2,300 just the next week. A group of journalists visited one of the all-male facilities in Brownsville, T.X. on June 13, and since the visit, the pictures have gone viral: creepy Trump murals, children in cages. As many have...
Satan may not be psyched about this, but most Satanists don’t believe in him. Despite what we know from metal lyrics, South Park, and B-horror flicks, the concept of a cloven-hoofed red guy with horns demanding worship and blood sacrifice from his followers doesn’t really resonate with the modern Satanist. You know what does? Feminism, reproductive rights, animal welfare, and political activism. So, what is Satanism? If your image of Lucifer is a bald guy with a goatee, you are thinking of Anton LaVey, who founded...
  Trump Administration reps say there is not yet a clear plan on how to reunite the thousands of families separated at the border following the zero-tolerance policy criminally prosecuting anyone caught entering the U.S. illegally, largely due to a lack of documentation and accurate record-keeping.

If you are horrified by the news of families being separated at the border: good, you should be. If you are not horrified, you must be misinformed or not paying attention. Understanding and spreading the correct information is one of the first ways you can start to help. The Trump administration is telling people that families are being torn apart due to a law put in place by Democrats and they are simply “following orders.” This is fake news. But does it sound familiar? Maybe that's...
Today, New York Representative Jerrold Nadler is introducing the Keep Families Together Act, the companion to a Senate bill calling to end the separation of migrant families. Like the Senate’s bill, this one also mandates that border control officials complete child welfare training and that the Department of Homeland Security put measures into place to reunite separated families. A new idea the bill introduces, though, is that prosecutors must delay taking action against immigrants seeking asylum. Nadler told TIME that “what the bill says in effect is...
Stenberg identifies as nonbinary and uses both she/her and they/them pronouns; she requested we use she/her pronouns when writing about her in our 2017 cover story, so we'll continue to follow her request here.  In happy news this Pride month, Amandla Stenberg revealed that she identifies as gay. In an interview with fellow queer-identifying celebrity King Princess, otherwise known as Mikaela Straus, Stenberg opened up about the “profound sense of relief” that she felt when she came to the understanding that she is “not bi, not...
