Holidays are all about hospitality, and now more than ever, we are being challenged as Americans to live up to our standards.
People who immigrate are fellow human beings whom we treat with respect and decency. We oppose inhumane treatment and vilification of people who immigrate and the government bodies that perpetuate it.
Do you value showing hospitality to all people, no matter where they were born? Here’s what you can do:
▢ Action 1: Give direct aid to people deported by the US.
Recently-deported people are vulnerable and are left with nothing.

▢ Action 2: Provide legal representation for vulnerable, unaccompanied children.
With a legal representative, people seeking asylum have statistically higher chance of their claims succeeding.
Donate: To Raices’ LEAF fund here.
▢ Action 3: Support reuniting moms and their kids.
Give 360 support: legal, bond payment, emergency housing, clothing, food and more to reunite families.
