black women in the judicial system, standing up for black mothers whose 
children have been killed by the police. Racial Prejudice,
Fighting Against Abuse and Sexual Assault,
Standing Up against LGBTQ Discrimination Trans women are under attack, 
would you stand up and fight back? Trans Women safety in Massachusetts 
is at risk right now seeing as the "keep Massachusetts safe" campaign 
seeks to repeal the 2016 Massachusetts Transgender Anti-Discrimination 
Bill, which is set to be voted on in November. The first Trans woman 
killed this year, Christa Leigh Steele-knudslien was a Massachusetts 
resident and founder of the Miss Trans New England pageant, and another

Standing up and fighting for access for women to political power,

Disabilities Act) Act Up, Fight Back!

OUR DEMANDS ARE:
1- Stop the brutal raids against undocumented women and their families 
nationwide, also we call not keep the policy of discrimination against 
women in general as business as usual.
2- Stop the arrest of undocumented parents when they are bringing their 
children to schools across the nation.
3- We call the federal government to respect sanctuary cities and 
institutions that had declare themselves as sanctuaries, which only 
goals are to help innocent undocumented people who have not committed 
any crime in this nation.
4- We are calling to the local police not to do the job that is assigned 
only to federal authorities when detaining undocumented people with not 
reason or justification.
5- Stop terrorizing our communities and diving our families across the 
nation.
6- We demand the full prosecution of those individuals that have killed 
or shot at lawful permanent resident or citizens of this country, which 
only crime has been to have a different color of skin than white people.
7- We demand to local authorities and the congress of the United States 
to start a Immigration Reform that this countries needs so badly as soon 
as possible and stop playing with the need of Millions of people in this 
country that provide support and create jobs to our nation.
8- The Time is Up, we demand to the courts and police departments to 
stop victimizing women when a sexual crime has been committed against 
them. We demand to believe in women and to support them when the are 
denouncing a sexual crime against them , when they are harassed or are 
the target of misogyny at work, at home or on the streets. #MeToo We 
stand up for $15 for the minimum wage and for equal payment for women now.
