HERE'S HOW YOU ARE SERVING THE SEPARATED BORDER FAMILIES TODAY -- UPDATE #2!
Two weeks ago, we came together in a @together.rising Love Flash Mob to help get babies – who were torn from their families at the border – back into their parents’ arms.
In 9 hours, you raised One Million Dollars.
In total, you raised $1,500,000.
Last week, we told you about our first round of giving, in which we funded the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project for an angel team of four lawyers and 3 legal assistants to represent children detained in Arizona detention centers and their families; and the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights in order to cover the costs of a lawyer and social worker who will be operating around the country and on the border to provide advocacy and healing to unaccompanied, detained children.
Now, we are updating you on our second wave of giving so you know where Together Rising is putting your funds to work with love warrior boots on the ground. Please click the link above to read the full update about where your dollars are hard at work right now.
This crisis is heartbreaking, but at Together Rising, we don’t do despair. We know that despair is self-indulgent. Instead, we turn our collective heartbreak into effective action.
Please read the update. And please become one of the helpers.
EVERY PENNY WE RECEIVE FROM THE LINK IN THE UPDATE WILL CONTINUE TO GO TO CAREFULLY VETTED ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WORKING TIRELESSLY TO REUNIFY CHILDREN WITH THEIR FAMILIES. We know immigration is complicated and still we say: NOT THIS.
Let us hold onto this non-negotiable: Babies should not be torn from their parents’ arms. GIVE TO SAY: NOT THIS.
