The translators giving indigenous migrants a voice

The group, Promoters of Migrant Liberation, provides translation of indigenous Guatemalan, Maya, Mexican, and Afro-Caribbean languages for migrants in US detention centers. They help translate right from detention, throughout case preparation, and as migrants exit detention centers. The group is made up of only women translating for women migrants, but as detention centers see more migrants as a result of zero-tolerance policies, they’re going to expand to help children and men.
