BORDER CRISIS

Below please find some resources that have been repeatedly suggested to us for donations, support and action targets. There’s more coming but I don’t want to hold this up any longer as we’re processing hundreds of emails.

I also invite all of you to share additional resources in the comments.

1) Families Belong Together (www.familiesbelong.org) is a site for protest, organizing and resources that we have recommended repeatedly.

2) The RAICES Family Reunification and Bond Fund is raising money to support families seeking reunification and in need of bond money.

Donate here: https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/bondfund…

3) The Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen Texas, is on the front lines for post-court support and is seeking donations for families once released.

They need diapers, Pedialyte (flavored only), feminine hygiene products, and other items listed here:

Toiletries for men and women (deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, etc)
Shoes (sandals, tennis shoes, loafers, etc) for men, women, children and infants of all sizes
Clothes (pants, t-shirts, blouses, underclothing, etc) for children and adults of all sizes
Baby supplies for toddlers (Pampers, baby wipes, baby bottles, etc.)
Sealed snack food (granola bars, chips, peanut butter & cheese crackers, etc)
Gift cards to purchase food items
Phone cards
Plastic bags for families to pack sandwiches, snacks, and water for their trip.

There is an Amazon Wish List as well as a donation mailing address here: https://www.catholiccharitiesrgv.org/donations.aspx

4) EVERYONE should be calling the Hill right now and screaming for the passage of the Joint House/Senate Bill known as the Keep Families Together Act. Call as many people as you can whether they represent you or not.

The main number for the Capitol switchboard is (202) 224-3121.

The text of the Keep Families Together Act is here:
