Alla Sonder

I am the founder and lead organizer of the Trans Asylum Seeker Support Network, although I am in the process of training activists so we can democratize our collective and be nonhierarchical. The Network is an internal collective of revolutionary abolitionists working within a broader network of volunteers and our community to get transgender and genderqueer asylum seekers across the US-Mexico border, out of ICE detention, and help them win their cases and build thriving lives in Western Massachusetts. We are also expanding to do indigenous sovereignty and Palestine solidarity organizing. We are committed to radically loving relations, resilient community, and transformative justice.
