We have seen and felt injustice in our state and country. We have watched our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, sons and daughters treated like outcasts and criminals. We have seen our relatives locked up for no crime other than freely seeking a better life. We have been victims of perpetual discrimination, racial profiling and suspicion. We do not accept this. We demand equality.
We will not stand idly by while our relatives’ families are being torn apart. We will not stand idly by while children are attacked with hate in school.
To you who cannot defend yourself out of fear: we will defend you because no human being is illegal. You were born with the inalienable right of your humanity.
We stand with the Native Americans who are remaining peaceful in prayer while suffering and enduring brutal attacks at the hands of militarized police, National Guard and corporate mercenaries merely for protecting their right to drinking water and the sanctity of their ancestral lands. We believe with you, that water is life. We stand with you in solidarity.
We support black men and women whose families and lives have been torn apart because of a racist criminal justice system. We recognize that the centuries-long struggle of black people in America to win equality is still being fought. We join you in your fight because we believe Black Lives Matter.
We will not remain silent if people are banned from our country, or forced to register because of their chosen religion.
We believe that all oppressed people share at least two things: their oppression, and the fight they share together for justice and equality.
Juntos wishes for Wyoming and the United States of America to be a welcoming place to live where you can safely work and raise a family. We have so much hope for this dream, and we promise to work tirelessly for you and your family to make it a reality. We at Juntos are the children of immigrants, and we understand the hardships and the reasons why people leave their homelands. The fight is real. Immigrants are part of everyone’s daily life. Everyone has something to lose.
Via social media, Juntos will be posting useful information, including ‘Know Your Rights Info’ and alerts on ICE checkpoints, raids, and targeted stops.
Part of our mission is to make sure people are prepared. With the recent arrests and deportations of DACA recipients, there is much uncertainty and we just want everyone to be ready.
Juntos desea que Wyoming y los E.U. sean un lugar acogedor para vivir donde puedan trabajar y criar en condiciones de seguridad una familia. Tenemos tantas esperanzas para este sueño, y nos comprometemos a trabajar incansablemente para que usted y su familia lo hagan realidad. Nosotros en Juntos somos hijos de inmigrantes, y entendemos las dificultades y las razones por las que la gente abandona su patria. La pelea es real. Los inmigrantes son parte de la vida cotidiana de todos. Todos tienen algo que perder.
A través de Facebook, Instagram, y Twitter, Juntos publicará información útil, incluyendo informacion “Conozca sus derechos” y alertas sobre puntos de verificación de ICE, incursiones y paradas dirigidas. Con un personal limitado, estamos trabajando duro en muchas tareas diferentes por lo que le pedimos su paciencia en nuestras respuestas a sus preguntas y comentarios.
Parte de nuestra misión es asegurarnos de que la gente esté preparada. Con las recientes detenciones y deportaciones de los receptores de DACA, hay mucha incertidumbre y sólo queremos que todos estén listos.
