Help Free Hilda!

Transcend Arizona is working with Hilda, a transgender woman from Mexico who is detained in an all-male facility in Florence, Arizona. Only a bond of $1500 separates Hilda from the chance to be free from immigration detention. Hilda is fighting in court to be able to stay in the US, a process which can take years. Now, with a bond, she has a chance to get out and fight her case on the outside, surrounded by supportive community.

Hilda is a survivor of extreme abuse in Mexico and has lived in Arizona for 14 years. She has faced many challenges, including severe domestic violence, threats and kidnapping. She has been locked up for over six months in an all-male detention center where she is often harassed for being a transgender woman. However, she is extremely resilient and wants to make a good life for herself in Phoenix. She has worked for many years in the US as a hairdresser and plans to live with her best friend in Phoenix if she can get out of immigration detention.

Please become a donor today to help Hilda get free from immigration detention. Once the money is raised, she could be free within 24 hours. Every contribution counts!

Transcend Arizona is a grassroots trans and LGB migrant community collective working towards liberation from all cages and borders.

Any amount that is raised in excess of Hilda's bond will go directly to pay the bonds of other trans and LGB migrants. When her bond is returned at the end of immigration proceedings, 100% of the funds will go directly to pay the bonds of other trans and LGB migrants.

The fundraiser amount is somewhat higher than the bond amount so that we can cover processing fees.
