1 Minute: Donate Money to These Organisations
There are a wide range of organisations that help advocate for migrant children and families via legal services, translators, social workers, and more. Some of the key organizations mobilising against the current separation policy include the following:
- RAICES is a Texas-based non-profit that provides free legal services to refugees and immigrants in need. You can donate directly to its Family Reunification and Bond Fund on the main page of the RAICES website. The fund will specifically be used to pay the immigration bond required to release parents who have been separated from their children at the border in order to free them from ICE custody — a vital first step in reuniting families.
- Kids in Need of Defense: KIND's staff and pro bono attorneys are on a mission to ensure no unaccompanied immigrant or refugee children appear in court for deportation proceedings alone.
- The Young Centre For Immigrant Children's Rights works to reform the immigration system with children in mind with its team of social workers, bilingual volunteers, and attorneys.
