Hamilton College will commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a lecture and dinner on Monday, Jan. 18, beginning at 5 p.m. in the Tolles Pavilion.  Jennicet Gutiérrez, trans Latina leader with FAMILIA TQLM, will discuss how her activism concerning trans liberation is inspired by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The event is free for Hamilton students, faculty and staff but registration is required. It is  co-sponsored by the Chaplaincy, COOP office, Associate Dean of Students and the Days-Massolo Center.

Gutiérrez is an undocumented trans Latina leader with FAMILIA TQLM in the campaign for #Not1More lgbtq deportation. She came to the U.S. from Mexico, seeking safety and economic opportunity and is an advocate for LGBT undocumented immigrants, particularly transgender detainees who allegedly  face abuse and torture in U.S. detention centers. Gutiérrez was a founding member of FAMILIA TQLM, established to advocate for LGBTQ immigrants often excluded in the immigration debate.
