After several months of building, organizing, conversing and strategizing we are happy to announce the Trust Orlando Coalition's official campaign kickoff! The coalition is comprised of 36 unions, community organizations, and faith groups united together to ensure the City of Orlando stands as a welcoming home for immigrant communities.
As a coalition, we are organizing for the passage of the Trust Act, an ordinance which would make sure that the City of Orlando not participate in federal immigration enforcement.
QLatinx is a proud member of this incredibly powerful group of leaders, and we are honored to elevate the voices of the LGBTQ+ Latinx community as we seek to foster a community of inclusion and empowerment.
Thank you to our coalition partners, our wonderful team of volunteers, the amazing and powerful speakers, and all of the incredible people that came out in support of this work!

Thank you, Gustavo, for using your voice to uplift the narratives of countless current and former DREAMERS and UndocuQueer youth from across the country and sharing your truth, and lived experience, with our local community. We are honored and humbled to have you as a leader in QLatinx advocating for immigrant and LGBTQ rights.
