Families Belong Together — Next Steps

The Trump Administration’s cruel and unnecessary decision to separate families at the Mexican border has unified a nation in outrage. We marched. We need to keep the pressure on. Below are a number of ways that you can help!

DONATE AND VOLUNTEER! Madres Sin Fronteras helps provide sanctuary for undocumented immigrants in our area. Please donate here or here (type “MSF” in the notes to make sure the money gets to Madres. If you are writing a check, write “MSF” in the memo). If you would like to volunteer, please send them a note: msfgainesville@gmail.com.

RAICES is the largest immigration nonprofit in Texas offering free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children and families. Donate here and sign up as a volunteer here.

There are numerous national groups working to protect kids separated from their families by ICE.  ActBlue has grouped some together in one location.

CALL! Tell your federal representatives that Families Belong Together (ideas for what to say can be found here.) and ICE’s aggressive tactics are unacceptable and DREAMers must be protected!
