Jahaira also does intersectional advocacy and activism in areas of gender, race, and sexuality work. One of the biggest parts of her work is helping too, in her words, “normalize” the transgender experience for those who might be unaware of what the community endures on a daily basis.
Jahaira DeAlto is also a leader and advocate from Boston who organizes through an immigrant trans radical womanist praxis.
Her work in social justice began in 1997 with the Chanelle Pickett murder trial. Notably, she has spoken at the Ryan White Youth Conference on HIV/AIDS, the Hetrick-Martin School, and Harvard University.
