Alyssa Pariah is a self-described "trans-woman" and "organizer" with Socialist Alternative New York City.
Alyssa Pariah led an anti-Trump rally in New York City in November 2016. She was quoted as saying:
- "protesters are sending a message that they are disgusted that 'someone who is as openly racist, sexist, bigoted as Trump could possibly be the leader of our country.'
- "The danger of right populism is that it comes with racism, homophobia, transphobia and misogyny,' Pariah said. 'We need to be here engaging in civil disobedience because we believe that struggle pushes people to more radical ideas.'"
