Help Sklarleth get safe & settled.

Skarleth is a 22-year-old who joined the the migrant caravan from Guatemala to seek political asylum in the US, with a contingent of 25 trans women. ( After three scary months in ICE detention in New Mexico, Skarleth has been released to NYC.

Through a network of activists in New Mexico, she's connected with legal resources and a temporary place to stay in NYC. But the rest is up to her -- and also up to us, since ICE doesn't allow her to work until 5 months after requesting asylum. (Thanks, ICE.)

The money raised here will help her with clothes, food, transportation, and a start on a permanent place to live.

You can use this page to send money and also messages of support. If you want to contribute directly to her instead of online, drop me a line.
