This week, we interviewed and sat down with three immigrant justice leaders to discuss the topic of: Disrupting the Good Immigrant Narrative!! 🌱✨ Valeria Suarez (they/she) is an undocumented queer organizer from Lima, Peru. During the past few years, they have focused on supporting deportation defense cases to free undocumented community members from detention. Valeria is currently the Bay Area Youth Coordinator for the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance (@ciyja ). Their work is centered around creating spaces for undocumented youth to learn deportation defense models in order to protect themselves and their communities. Valeria also serves as the coordinator for FREESF Coalition, organizing at the intersection of criminal justice reform and immigrant rights. Laith 'Lai' Ocean (They/Them) is a disabled UndocuQueer Nicoya and ex-organizer. Lai transferred to UC Berkeley as a spring transfer from Santa Rosa Junior College to major in Sociology. Laith is currently an intern at the Multicultural Community Center (MCC) continuing their work with immigrant justice through an abolitionist framework. Nate Tan is the Co-Director of Asian Prisoner Support Committee. He has organized for the freedom of immigrants and refugees with criminal convictions for over five years with Asian Prisoner Support Committee.
