Mourn, and organize: AORTA statement on the 2016 election

Our movements for justice have taken a terrible blow today. Donald Trump ran a campaign rooted in and reliant upon white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, antisemitism, and Islamophobia—and won. Exit polls show 58% of white voters, ranging across class, educational background, and gender, elected Trump.


Black Lives Matter.

What pain we have witnessed this week. What crushing and devastating injustice. We are seeing violence against Black communities increasingly revealed, but it is not new. It is the natural order of a system designed by white supremacy. 

Our Response to the Pulse Shooting in Orlando

We are an organization of queer people who are devastated and in grief over the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. This was an attack on queerness, on queer and trans people of color specifically. Our rage is a queer rage. Our love for our community, for the victims and survivors of this tragedy, is a queer love.

Please join us in welcoming Autumn Brown to AORTA!
