A GSA alum urgently needs your help!
Yordy Cancino is a leader who worked to transform his high school and his city of Los Angeles as the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club President at Animo Jackie Robinson High School. A GSA Network alum from the class of 2011, Yordy has lived in California since he was a child and gone to school here since elementary school.
Now, Yordy is being held in detention, not allowed to return to the home he worked so hard to make safer for all LGBTQ youth.
Almost 1000 youth have signed the petition to free Yordy & other LGBTQ immigrants seeking asylum. Please join them: http://unite.gsanetwork.org/p/yordy
For 3 days in a row now, ICE has come up with bizarre excuses (“the recording system is down”, “your file cannot be found”, etc) to prevent him from resuming his life in Los Angeles and the country he has helped build. Yordy will be facing the judge again today at 1:00 pm. Please sign the petition and call 202-732-3000 to #FreeYordy.
