The Radical Brownies, a group of young girls of color learning about and fighting for social justice, just made it to MTV News – along with their support for the #FreeNicoll campaign!

Transgender Law Center is part of a broad coalition working to free Nicoll Hernandez-Polanco, a Guatemalen transgender woman, from an all-male Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center. The Radical Brownies got involved after the #FreeNicoll National Week of Action recently made headlines across the country. The Brownies sent Nicoll encouraging notes of love and support to, as one of the Brownies explained, “keep her strong and to keep her happy that her community misses her and that her community is trying to help her.” Join the Brownies in sending love to Nicoll by writing your own note in Spanish and mailing it using the address on the right (click to make bigger)!

We are so excited to see young girls fighting for justice in our communities. Keep up the good work, Radical Brownies.
