Our community lost Jahaira DeAlto; a domestic violence advocate, trans activist, founding organizer of Trans Resistance, mother of Ballroom and so many people who she welcomed into her home so that they could live their truth. Join us at Franklin Park as we gather in honor of a legend and icon. Please consider contributing to her Go-Fund-Me to support expenses, her family, and surviving dog Albi.
If you didn’t have a chance to know Jahaira, here are some tributes to share her impact on the community:
