Transgender Activist Isa Noyola on The Michelle Meow Show 8/30/18
Our guest this week: Isa Noyola
Isa Noyola is a Latina transgender activist and national leader in the LGBT immigrant rights movement. She is the deputy director of the Transgender Law Center, the country’s largest trans-led national organization that changes law, policy and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression. In 2015 she organized the first national trans anti-violence convening, an event that brought together more than 100 activists, mostly trans women of color, to address the epidemic of violence faced by trans communities. Isa is also one of the foremost experts on the experiences of trans communities, particularly that of trans women of color, within the prison and immigration enforcement systems in the United States. She works extensively for the release of transgender women from ICE detention and an end to all deportations. She recently was named as one of the world’s most-qualified women fighting for gender equality and one of the top 50 Woman Visionaries from Quartz Magazine's online campaign How We’ll Win.
