join the movement to #freeliyah

Aylaliya “Liyah” Birru, an Ethiopian immigrant survivor of domestic violence, is facing deportation for defending herself against her abusive ex-husband.

Like Marissa Alexander, Cherelle Baldwin, and so many other Black women who dare to defend themselves, Liyah is being punished for protecting herself against the severe violence of a man who said no one would believe her if she ever dared to ask for help. We are here to say that we not only believe Liyah, but will fight for her freedom, dignity, and right to safety from domestic violence.

Join us in fighting for Liyah’s release today!
