Thank you to the Texas AFL-CIO for making this video.

Unite Here Local 23

On this Transgender Day of Remembrance Local 23 mourns the loss of TeeTee Dangerfield and all other transgender people who have had their life taken so soon and... so violently.

Teetee was a very proud member of Local 23, and a trans woman who was senselessly murdered earlier this year.
We were horrified and saddened by TeeTee’s unconscionable murder that took away a shining star in her community, workplace, and union. TeeTee was not only a skilled server whose warm and friendly service led some passengers to seek her out specifically when they flew out of or through ATL—she was also a leader in her union, seeking to become "the best shop steward our union had ever seen."

While we mourn the fact that her life was taken so soon and so violently, we are also angry. Angry that transphobia and hate continue to manifest in our communities, where all individuals have the right to live their lives as whomever they are. TeeTee was the 16th known transgender person to be killed in the United States in 2017, that number has now reached 25. This is an epidemic that can and must be stopped.

For our part, we will continue to fight for workplace protections for our LGBTQ family, which is but one piece of the larger movement to end the discrimination and violence often directed at the trans- and broader LGBTQ community. We will honor TeeTee’s memory by lending our collective strength and voices to say: Enough is enough! Not one more.

Justice for TeeTee. Rest in Power, sister.

UNITE HERE Local 23 members, along with allies from the Young Democratic Socialists of America and Rick Trevino, congressional candidate in CD 23, showed up today to talk to U.S. Representative Will Hurd's office at his South Side San Antonio office about TPS - Temporary Protected Status. No one was there to greet us (except lots and lots of police). We slipped our demands under his door. I wonder if anyone will show up to see it? Join us to call on Congressman Hurd to #saveTPS! #unitehere http://www.unitehereimmigration.org/savetps/

• There are 320,000 people currently living in the U.S. with Temporary Protected Status (TPS). 44,800 in Texas.

• If the Trump Administration does not renew their status, they will become undocumented, lose their jobs and be subject to deportation.

• On October 26th, hundreds of UNITE HERE members and immigrant justice allies are going to Washington, DC to lobby Senators and Members of Congress. Let's support the delegation locally!

...

• A decision will be made soon! We need Congressman Will Hurd to EXTEND TPS!

We will leave at 11 am to visit Congressman Hurd's office and demand that he support the extension of TPS!

Call Danna at 210-802-9919 with any questions!
