Pearl Love is an outreach social worker for Translatina Network.

“That’s just a really small thing that I face every day,” she shared. “I go to a job interview, they look at me like, ‘You’re never going to get a job. They never even waste your time asking anything about you when you look feminine.”

NOM just organized a rally at the Mexican embassy in Washington DC, a show of [...]
