Novenario for the eternal rest of Selena Hidalgo Calderon

You are cordially invited to the novenario for the eternal rest of Selena Hidalgo Calderon, Selena is the daughter of our friend and compañera Estela Calderon. Selena was a young mother and farmworker from Guatemala victim of domestic violence. Her little son Owen, has not been found. In Syracuse this tragedy has broken our hearts, especially at the Workers’ Center, as Estela and her family are esteemed members of our organization. We have been supporting the family and thanks to a network of allies, we have been with the family providing childcare, food and transportation as well as community. Last week we started a novenario, an Indigenous and Catholic tradition of 9 days of mourning with the family. Every night at 7pm we gather for prayers and to be with Estela and her family. Another way to support the family is donating to their fundraiser page: https://www.gofundme.com/support-estela-and-her-family or making donations of food, help with transportation and childcare.

Syracuse, NY: Remembering Selena Hidalgo Calderon

At 2 pm on Sunday, June 3rd, friends and family of Selena Hidalgo Calderon will host a memorial service for Selena. The service will be held at St. Gregory Church, 3799 Union St. Marion, NY.

While Selena’s family will be in attendance at the memorial, they will not be speaking to the press at this time. Questions will be addressed at a press conference at 10 am on Tuesday, June 5. The press conference will be held at the Workers’ Center of CNY office located at 2013 E. Genesee St. Syracuse, NY.

The Marion memorial service is part of several remembrance events, including a novenario—nine successive days of remembrance prayers which began Monday evening in Syracuse and will conclude on June 5.

“The novenario is a nine-day ceremony of prayer with Catholic elements and Indigenous roots in the Latin American country it is practiced in,” said Janet Flores, a Workers’ Center volunteer who has been participating in the ceremonies. “This tradition helps guide the soul of a deceased person to the next life.”

For the ceremony, Selena’s mother, alongside family and friends, created an altar with images of Selena, flowers, candles, and rosaries.

“For many, these traditions are important not only as a means to pray for a loved one. They help us to deal with things like death that are too difficult to deal with alone,” said Abel Gómez, a Religion PhD student at Syracuse University who attended the first night’s ceremony.

“These practices also connect people to a sense of home,” said Gómez. ‘This is especially important for those living far from their homelands and the family they grew up with.”

Many friends and supporters who cannot attend the services have been sharing messages of support to a fundraiser for Estela’s family.

For more information about the novenario from Abel and Janet and other statements relevant to Selena, her son Owen, and her mother Estela, please visit the Workers’ Center website.

Press Statement: Three Local Policies That Can Help Prevent Tragedies/Tres políticas locales que pueden ayudar a prevenir tragedias

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday June 1st, 2018

Syracuse, NY: Three Local Policies That Can Help Prevent Tragedies

1. Equal Access to Survivor Support Resources
While Selena’s death was senseless, it also represents a chilling reality here in the United States. Fifty-five percent of the women murdered in the U.S. are murdered by an intimate partner. Though it is difficult for many survivors and victims of domestic violence to access much needed resources and support, these difficulties are especially acute for immigrant farmworker women.

The current wave of anti-immigrant rhetoric and the aggressive detainment of immigrants directly contribute to the isolation and vulnerability of farmworker women who have limited financial resources and little to no access to the transportation needed to escape dangerous situations.

We point out the barriers while acknowledging the many great local resources for survivors of domestic violence:

Worker Justice Center of NY Domestic & Sexual Violence Project for Farm Worker Women 24-hour Crisis Hotlines – WNY (866)343-8808 & Hudson Valley Region (845)471-3033

Vera House, Inc. 24-hour Hotline (315)468-3260

The Victim Resource Center, Inc. 24-hour Hotline (866)343-8808

2. Driver’s Licenses Regardless of Immigration Status
One tangible way for farmworker women to access basic services and leave dangerous situations is the ability to obtain a driver’s license.

In twelve states, people can receive a driver’s license regardless of immigration status. Unfortunately, New York state is not one of these states, limiting the ability of undocumented workers to access necessities for themselves and their families. The Workers’ Center is collaborating with organizations across the state to make driver’s licenses available to all as part of the Green Light Campaign. New York once ensured equal access to a license but Governor Pataki caved to anti-immigrant sentiment in 2001. NY A10273, which has 28 co-sponsors in the New York Assembly, would allow the state to issue standard licenses to qualified state residents regardless of immigration status.

“Too often, our immigrant communities find themselves in precarious working conditions and/or violent environments,” said Fabiola Ortiz, an organizer with the New York Immigration Coalition and a Workers’ Center ally. “Having a driver’s license would increase the chances of reporting the crimes that immigrant women are victims of.”

“It’s not just a matter of freedom of movement, but of seeking justice. Driver’s licenses are not a privilege, but a necessity, and sometimes can make the difference between life and death,” said Ortiz.

3. Restrict ICE and Border Patrol
Anti-immigrant rhetoric from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the White House, conservative media, and white supremacists hide the fact that immigrants make communities safer. Every study to look at the relationship between violent crime and immigration has concluded that immigrants commit less violent crime than native born US citizens, and more immigrants in a community typically makes that community a safer place to live.

Yet, despite these incontrovertible facts, ICE is attempting to use Selena’s death as justification to further terrorize and criminalize hard-working families in the region.

Given that ICE’s actions make it less safe for farmworker women to receive the support and resources they deserve, it is unconscionable that field director Thomas Feely would use Selena’s death to further the myth of the criminal immigrant. As the “me too” movement has so clearly demonstrated within the past year, men who commit egregious acts of violence against women are found throughout many different spheres of society–including the state attorney’s office, the white house, and at Feely’s own agency. Hundreds of reports were recently released of ICE agents raping and assaulting women and children in their custody.

As Selena’s mother, Estela Hidalgo Calderon said, “We came to this country in search of safety and we never thought we’d find a demon. But there are demons in all places.”

Restricting ICE and border patrol when possible will help give undocumented workers equal access to basic rights and resources. Private companies like Greyhound should restrict border patrol from racial profiling on their buses. Cities and local law enforcement agencies should not collaborate with ICE or border patrol if they want to help keep immigrant communities safe.

Farmworker women need be able to access life-saving resources without fear that they themselves will be torn from their families, criminalized, detained, and/or violated in the process.

Syracuse, NY: Tres políticas locales que pueden ayudar a prevenir tragedias

1. Igualdad de acceso a los recursos de apoyo de sobrevivientes. Al tiempo que la muerte de Selena no tuvo sentido, su muerte representa una realidad inquietante aquí en los Estados Unidos. El cincuenta y cinco por ciento de las mujeres asesinadas en los EE.UU son asesinadas por un compañero íntimo. Aunque es difícil para muchos sobrevivientes y víctimas de violencia doméstica acceder a recursos y apoyo muy necesarios, estas dificultades son especialmente graves para las mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas que son inmigrantes.

La propagación actual de narrativa anti-inmigrante y la detención agresiva de inmigrantes contribuyen directamente al aislamiento y la vulnerabilidad de las mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas que tienen recursos financieros limitados, y poco o ningún acceso a transporte necesario para escapar de situaciones peligrosas.

Señalamos los obstáculos al tiempo que reconocemos que hay muchos y excelentes recursos locales para sobrevivientes de violencia doméstica:

Worker Justice Center of NY Domestic & Sexual Violence Project for Farm Worker Women 24-hour Crisis Hotlines – WNY (866)343-8808 & Hudson Valley Region (845)471-3033

Vera House, Inc. 24-hour Hotline (315)468-3260

The Victim Resource Center, Inc. 24-hour Hotline (866)343-8808

2. Licencias de conducir independientemente del estado migratorio.
La capacidad de conseguir una licencia de conducir es una forma concreta para que las mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas accedan a los servicios básicos y salgan de situaciones peligrosas.

Actualmente, en doce estados, se puede recibir una licencia de conducir independientemente de su estado migratorio. Desafortunadamente, Nueva York no es uno de estos estados, lo que limita la capacidad de los trabajadores indocumentados para acceder a las necesidades para ellos mismos y sus familias. El Centro de Trabajadores está colaborando con organizaciones de todo el estado para que las licencias de conducir estén disponibles para todos como parte de Luz Verde NY Manejando Juntos.

A pesar de que Nueva York aseguró el acceso equitativo de las licencias, el gobernador Pataki cedió al sentimiento antiinmigrante en 2001. Ahora, NY A10273, que lleva 28 co- patrocinadores en la Asamblea de Nueva York, permitiría al estado para emitir licencias estándar a residentes estatales calificados, independientemente de su estado migratorio.

“Con demasiada frecuencia, nuestras comunidades de inmigrantes se encuentran en condiciones de trabajo precarias y / o entornos violentos,” dijo Fabiola Ortiz Valdez, organizadora de la Coalición de Inmigración de Nueva York y aliada del Centro de Trabajadores. “Tener una licencia de conducir aumentaría las posibilidades de denunciar los crímenes de los que son víctimas las mujeres inmigrantes.”

“No es solo una cuestión de libertad de movimiento, sino de buscar justicia. Las licencias de conducir no son un privilegio, sino una necesidad, y en ocasiones pueden marcar la diferencia entre la vida y la muerte. ” dijo Ortiz Valdez.

3. Restringir el ICE y la Patrulla Fronteriza
La retórica antiinmigrante de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE), la Casa Blanca, los medios conservadores y los supremacistas blancos ocultan el hecho de que los inmigrantes hacen que las comunidades sean más seguras. Cada estudio que analiza la relación entre el crimen violento y la inmigración ha concluido que los inmigrantes cometen menos crímenes violentos que los ciudadanos nativos de los EE.UU, y que más inmigrantes en una comunidad suelen hacer de esa comunidad un lugar más seguro para vivir.

A pesar de estos hechos incontrovertibles, ICE está intentando usar la muerte de Selena como justificación para aterrorizar y criminalizar aún más a las familias trabajadoras en la región.

Dado que las acciones de ICE hacen que sea menos seguro para las mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas recibir el apoyo y los recursos que merecen, es inconcebible que el director regional Thomas Feely usará la muerte de Selena para promover el mito del inmigrante criminal. Como el movimiento “yo también” ha demostrado tan claramente el año pasado, los hombres que cometen actos atroces de violencia contra las mujeres se encuentran en muchas esferas diferentes de la sociedad, incluida la fiscalía estatal, la casa blanca y la agencia de Feely. Cientos de informes fueron liberados recientemente por agentes de ICE que violaron y agredieron a mujeres y niños bajo su custodia.

Como madre de Selena, Estela Hidalgo Calderón dijo: “Vinimos a este país en busca de seguridad y nunca pensamos que íbamos a encontrar un demonio. Pero hay demonios en todos los lugares “.

Restringir a ICE y patrullaje fronterizo cuando sea posible ayudará a dar a los trabajadores indocumentados el mismo acceso a los derechos y recursos básicos. Las compañías privadas como Greyhound deberían restringir la patrulla fronteriza de perfiles raciales en sus autobuses. Las ciudades y las agencias locales de aplicación de la ley no deberían colaborar con el ICE o la patrulla fronteriza si desean ayudar a mantener seguras a las comunidades de inmigrantes.

Las mujeres trabajadoras agrícolas deben poder acceder a los recursos que salvan vidas sin temor a que ellas mismas sean arrancadas de sus familias, criminalizadas, detenidas y / o violadas en el proceso.

Press Release: Grandmother Urges Continued Search for Owen

Syracuse, NY: Grandmother Urges Continued Search for Owen.

Estela Calderon will be meeting today with the Wayne County Sheriff’s office and the District Attorney to get updates on the search for her missing grandson, 14-month-old Owen Hidalgo Calderon.

Though the Amber Alert was canceled Tuesday, we urge the Wayne County Sheriff’s office, fire departments, and volunteers to keep up hopes of finding Owen alive. “I want the search to continue,” said Estela. “My hope is that Owen is found alive, that the monster who did this to my daughter tells us where Owen is so I can go get my little boy and give to him the love and care I can no longer give to my daughter.”

Estela and the Workers’ Center of Central New York would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the community members and organizations throughout Central New York and beyond who continue to search for Owen and who work to find justice for his mother, Selena.

We are also deeply grateful to the immigrant farmworkers who have been instrumental in providing statements and other crucial information to the authorities. Even in this current climate, where immigrant communities have a deep fear and mistrust of law enforcement, farmworkers have been providing statements to law enforcement and supporting the family. What we have heard from the farmworker community is that they are extremely unsettled by the fact that a killer may have been in their midst.

Lastly, Estela appreciates all of the support, love, and solidarity she has received. Members, friends, and staff of the Workers’ Center of Central New York have created an online fundraising campaign to support her and her family in this truly difficult time. Losing a child–especially to such senseless violence–is a pain no mother should have to bear. It is certainly not a pain or burden a mother should ever be forced to carry alone. As one supporter shared on the fundraising page: “I have also lost a daughter to violence and my heart goes out to Estela and to everyone who loved Selena. The ripples are wide.

In these very difficult times we stand in solidarity, in accompaniment, and as witnesses. We denounce all forms of violence against women and children and call attention to the particular vulnerabilities faced by immigrant families. If anyone who reads this knows or suspects an immigrant woman is suffering assure them they are not alone and please contact us at 315-218-5708 or direct them to the following resources:

Statement from the family of Selena Hidalgo and the Workers’ Center of CNY

Syracuse, NY: Statement from the Family of Selena Hidalgo Calderon and advocates the Workers’ Center of Central New York.

“My daughter and my grandson were my life, she was my first born and I feel like a piece of my heart is gone.”

-Estela Calderon, mother of Selena Hidalgo Calderon

When a mother loses a child, no matter what age, they grieve for their baby, for their toddler, for their teen, for the adult they would have become. The grief of losing a child to illness or an accident is immense but more so losing one’s child to an act of senseless violence. As members, friends, and staff of the Workers’ Center of Central NY, we grieve alongside Estela for the loss of her 18-year-old daughter, Selena Hidalgo Calderon. Estela describes Selena as a tender-hearted daughter and loving mother of her one-year-old son, Owen Hildalgo Calderon.

A hard-working mother, Selena was one of the many thousands of upstate NY farm workers who have contributed to the state’s agricultural industry.

The Workers’ Center of Central New York organizes with farmworkers around the region for equal rights and access to basic protections at the workplace. It also builds community among farmworkers who have lost their jobs or who experience the many hardships of being marginalized laborers. Selena’s death is an immeasurable loss, but it was also preventable.

We see her death as linked to the precarious, isolated, and vulnerable living conditions of immigrant women working in rural areas. Living with limited resources, little to no access to transportation, and persecuted by state agents, immigrant women are afraid to report domestic abuse or assault and often have no way to leave dangerous situations. As a workers’ center we stand up for the rights and dignity of low-wage workers and build community and organize precisely to end these cycles of isolation and violence. We will continue to fight for a world in which every person has equal access to basic services and protections.

Upon learning that Selena and her one-year-old son were missing we organized a press conference in Sodus, NY to alert the broader community and have them join us in our search. We were able to activate a network of people who gave us information of when Selena was last seen. Shortly after, we learned of her death. Her one-year-old child is still missing.

“What has happened to my family is unfair. I want the perpetrator to go to jail forever. I do not want another family to be hurt in this way.”

As Estela’s statement reminds us, we are guided by collective principles of family and community and we mourn and rally alongside Estela because she is part of our extended immigrant family. In these very difficult times we stand in solidarity, in accompaniment, and as witnesses. We denounce all forms of violence against women and children and call attention to the particular vulnerabilities faced by immigrant families. If anyone who reads this knows or suspects an immigrant woman is suffering assure them they are not alone and please contact us at 315-218-5708 or direct them to the following resources:
