Make Your Mark: July
We have all been devastated by the stories of families being separated at our nation’s border. From donating to organizations on the ground, to volunteering your time, here are a few things you can do to help.

Call your representatives! Let them know you stand with refugees and asylum seekers and that you want families reunited. Organizations like the IRC and the ACLU make it easy to enter your name and telephone number and be connected with the appropriate representatives.

Donate to organizations on the ground! There are so many wonderful organizations doing the difficult work of getting these families what they really need, which is lawyers! The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services or RAICES has started a Family Reunification and Bond Fund to support legal services for detained parents and to directly fund bonds to get them released.

Volunteer! Lawyers are particularly needed, but as Dr. Goodall so eloquently reminds us, we all have a role to play. The always brilliant Together Rising has done a fantastic job rounding up the opportunities available to everyone.
