Petition to Dr. Álvaro Antonio Ascary Aguillón Ramírez, Mtro. Rogelio Garza Rivera

Restituyan al mtro. trans Loren Daniel en FaPsi / Reinstate Transgender Prof. Loren Daniel

[ ENGLISH VERSION BELOW ] ____________________________________________________________ Loren Daniel Ibarra es un joven trans de 32 años, becario CONACYT, pasante de doctorado e investigador. Ha publicado diversos capítulos de libros y artículos científicos, es panelista frecuente en conferencias y talleres sobre psicología, investigación y sexualidad; es también activista de derechos humanos y rescatista de perros y gatos de la calle. Fue estudiante ejemplar en licenciatura, maestría y doctorado, así como también trabajador excepcional en la Facultad de Psicología (FaPsi) de la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL) desde enero de 2015. Loren es conocido por ser ético, confiable, trabajador y honesto. Su meta profesional es ser docente de tiempo completo, continuar enseñando investigación y haciendo talleres sobre derechos humanos y diversidad sexual, y ser investigador en el Sistema Nacional de Investigadores (SNI) en su área de especialidad: calidad de vida en poblaciones vulnerables.En Mayo del 2017 incluso recibió el reconocimiento como maestro de investigación mejor evaluado en FaPsi, distinción otorgada basándose en la evaluación del cuerpo estudiantil de la facultad. Sin embargo, después de anunciar su proceso de transición por identidad de género trans, el director de la Facultad le retiró sus 15 horas clase, su seguro médico, y sus alumnxs de tutorías, y por dos semestres le ha negado la oportunidad de volver a ser docente sin ninguna explicación objetiva. De igual manera, la coordinadora de recursos humanos se negó durante más de seis meses a rectificar sus datos personales de nombre y género como empleado, a pesar de mostrar toda la documentación legal necesaria. En Febrero de 2018, Mtro. Loren Daniel presentó una queja por discriminación ante la Comisión Estatal de Derechos Humanos de Nuevo León (CEDHNL), y un mes después, fue despedido sin ninguna explicación ni justificación.Se ha intentado dialogar en diversas ocasiones tanto con el director como con la coordinadora de recursos humanos para saber las causales de su despido sin tener éxito. Más que tratarse de un caso aislado, los despidos injustificados son una realidad que constantemente viven las personas trans al hacer la transición hacia el género deseado. Es por lo anterior que exigimos: 1. Que se restituyan las 15 horas clase que el Mtro. Loren Daniel tenía asignadas en FaPsi, así como su seguridad social a través de servicios médicos de la UANL. 2. Que se rectifiquen sus datos personales de nombre y género como empleado de FaPsi, así como en sus cheques. 3. Que se respete la identidad de género y se protejan los derechos de las personas trans que se encuentran estudiando y/o trabajando en la UANL, mediante la implementación de un protocolo de identidad de género. 4. Que el director de FaPsi ofrezca una disculpa pública y asegure que no volverá a repetirse el acto, omisión o práctica discriminatoria. 5. Que las y los directivos de FaPsi asistan a un curso-taller de mínimo 10 horas sobre el derecho a la no discriminación y los derechos humanos de los grupos vulnerables. Recordemos que todas las personas, independientemente de su orientación sexual, identidad de género y/o expresión de género, tenemos derecho a la identidad, a la educación, a los servicios de salud, y a un trabajo que nos permita tener una vida digna. Con esta petición no pedimos un trato preferencial hacia las personas trans, simplemente solicitamos que existan opciones y acciones afirmativas para que una persona trans pueda realizar su proceso de transición sin temer por su situación laboral ni sus derechos humanos. Si ganamos, estaremos dando un enorme paso hacia la protección de derechos humanos para todas las personas y contribuyendo a que se normalice el alzar nuestras voces frente a actos de opresión similares.

He has published several book chapters and scientific articles. Loren is a person known for his ethics, reliability, hard work, and honesty. He is a frequent speaker in conferences and workshops that address human rights, sexual diversity, and the right to non-discrimination, and is also an activist and rescuer of street cats and dogs. His goals as a professional are to be a full-time university professor, to continue teaching research, to assemble workshops on human rights and sexual diversity, and to be a member of Mexico's National System of Researchers (SNI) in his area of expertise: quality of life in vulnerable populations. During his bachelor, masters and doctoral studies, Loren Daniel was an exemplary student, as well as an exceptional employee since January 2015 in the School of Psychology (FaPsi) of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL).In fact, in May 2017 he received a most outstanding review and was rated best research professor in FaPsi, a recognition granted only and directly by students. Nevertheless, after announcing his gender-confirming process, under orders from the Director of the Faculty, his fifteen (15) teaching hours were withdrawn, –plus a group of students he tutored–, along with his health benefits. For two semesters now, he’s been denied the opportunity to return to teaching, and has received no objective explanation for this decision. Likewise, the human resources coordinator has refused to rectify Loren’s personal information with his updated name and gender for over six months, despite having submitted the necessary legal documentation. In February 2018 Loren filed a discrimination complaint to the State Human Rights Commission (CEDHNL), and a month later, Loren was fired without any explanation nor justification. A request for dialogue has been attempted on multiple occasions with the director and the human resources coordinator, without success. Far from this being an isolated case, unfair dismissals are a reality that trans people constantly experience when making the transition to their desired gender. Due to the reasons above, we demand: 1. To reinstate Loren his 15 teaching hours, as well as his social security benefits.2. To amend Loren’s personal information with the correct name and gender in the FaPsi employees registry, as well as in his paychecks.3. That the gender identity for trans people that study and/or work in the university is respected, and their rights protected, through the implementation of a protocol for gender identity.4. A public apology from the Director of the Faculty, and his assurance that discriminatory acts, omissions, or practices will not be allowed nor repeated.5. That FaPsi authorities and officials (deputy director, assistant director, vice-principal / “directivos”) attend a course–workshop of minimum 10 hours on the right to non-discrimination and human rights of vulnerable populations. Let us remember that all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression have the right to one's identity, education, healthcare, and an employment to live a life with dignity. The aim of our petition is not to ask for preferential treatment for being a trans person, it is simply that they are treated like any other.If we win, we would be giving a step together towards the protection of human rights for all peoples, and contributing to the normalisation of raising our voices when faced with similar oppressive acts.

Petition to Rex Tillerson, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives

@StateDept: Stop Licensing Gun Sales to Mexican Military and Police

Dear Secretary of State Tillerson,The State Department should suspend licenses to ship firearms to Mexican military and police until the U.S. can ensure they do not go to forces that collude with organized crime or violate human rights. Gun homicides in Mexico this year are the highest on record. Yet: • U.S. legal gun exports to the Mexican military, which distributes guns to state and local police, are nearly ten times what they were in 2001-2004; • the State Department licensed $266 million worth of gun sales by the U.S. gun producer Sig Sauer to the Mexican military; and • the Mexican Army sells guns to police with no verifiable mechanisms to track U.S. firearm shipments. As a result, U.S. companies have exported assault weapons to police that violate human rights and collude with organized crime, including police who attacked and disappeared 43 students from Ayotzinapa. The two major earthquakes that shook Mexico in September caused billions of dollars in damages to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Two hundred fifty thousand Mexicans lost their homes. U.S.-Mexico trade should benefit the majority of people in both countries, not arm forces that are destroying families and causing them to flee in search of refuge. The United States must stop weapons exports to end users in the Mexican military and police for whom there is documentation of collusion with organized crime or commission of gross human rights violations, until they have been brought to justice.

Tell Walmart to stop this cage-free hypocrisy!

Living in New York can be expensive; so finding good deals and stretching each dollar is very important. That is why I frequently shop at Walmart both here, and when I visit my family in Mexico. Shockingly, when shopping back home in Mexico at Walmart, I learned that Walmart has different standards for food safety and how animals should be treated. Like the vast majority of consumers in the US and throughout Mexico, my family takes animal welfare seriously. This is why my family and I were shocked to learn that Walmart refuses to end its support of cruel cage farms in Mexico despite already committing to going 100% cage-free in the United States! Walmart locations in Mexico are clearly held to a substandard and this not acceptable. Major restaurants, retailers, distributors and egg suppliers are making the transition to cage-free due to an outpour from consumers demanding these important changes for animals. Even McDonald’s, Burger King, and Grupo Bimbo have committed to going 100% cage-free in Mexico. So why does Walmart think that nobody will catch wind of its continued support of caging animals in this changing climate? As it stands today, Walmart is showing its apparent true colors: Food standards in Mexico are not as important as food standards in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. I ask both my Mexican and American friends -- please sign my petition to plead for equal food standards in both United States and Mexico.
