Last day of #Pride, but that doesn't mean we stop fighting for equality, LGBTI rights, and dignity for people whose human rights are being denied.
"Congress and the Biden administration must immediately act to uphold access to asylum without further delay.”
“The crisis at the U.S. border is a crisis of human rights and its roots trace back to the White House. Migrants have paid a terrible price for xenophobic policies like MPP and Title 42.
"... where they face the threat of kidnapping, rape and violence, deport them to the very countries from which they fled persecution, and force them to take desperate and perilous routes to try to find safety.
“While we celebrate today, access to asylum at the border is still under threat, as Title 42 is abused to forcibly expel asylum-seekers to dangerous areas in Mexico...
"The result of today’s decision will mean that people who have been thrust into danger in Mexico will now have the ability to exercise their right to seek asylum.
“With MPP and Title 42 in place, the borderlands are a place of cascading, failed policies in which there is no access to asylum, and asylum-seekers are forced to take increasingly dangerous routes to safety.
"The Biden administration must now quickly move to ensure that those impacted by MPP have immediate access to pursue their asylum claims in safety.
“In the wake of yet another avoidable tragedy fueled by failed deterrence policy in which over 50 migrants died in the back of a tractor trailer in San Antonio, the Supreme Court affirmed today that the Biden administration rightly terminated MPP.

Help us ensure all people have access to abortion care. Contact your governor and demand they defend the right to abortion in your state! Act now >>>…
When Indigenous women in the USA need post-rape care, they often can’t access it. Their clinic may be closed, or there may not be qualified staff on duty to do exams. Many don’t have access to rape kits, which are crucial for successful prosecution.
Nothing I say or tweet is going to be revolutionary. None of our tweets will be. So I’m choosing to be as helpful as I know how to be which is to spread helpful information. Abortion is a human right. That’s all. Here are the facts….…

The sustained assault on the human rights of LGBTI people is a global crisis, and it is everybody’s problem. #Pride
"The world is waiting for the United States to do what almost 100 countries have achieved during this past half century – total abolition of the death penalty – and the time is now.”
"Biden must immediately make up for lost time by commuting the death sentences of all those on federal death row.
“The USA has carried out more than 1,500 executions since Furman, even as it has labelled itself as a global human rights champion. Yet international human rights law requires abolition of the death penalty within a reasonable timeframe.
"The Biden administration has continued to defend the death sentences of those on federal death row, and the death penalty remains on the table in a number of pending federal trials.
"Aside from a temporary freeze on federal executions, however, there has been little visible progress on President Biden’s pledge in the past 18 months.
“For the first time since Furman, the United States now has a President who came to office on an abolitionist promise to work to end the death penalty at the federal and state levels.
"As memories of that shameful episode fade, it seems that the political will for abolition is dissipating also.
"Thirteen federal executions went forward despite compelling legal claims, including those of racial discrimination, arbitrariness, inadequate legal representation, mental and intellectual disabilities, and prosecutorial misconduct.
“When the Trump administration resumed federal executions in July 2020 after a 17-year hiatus, it provided a stark reminder of the horror show that is capital justice in the United States.
