conversation recorded October 2017.
thank you for listening.
some organizations offering care & support to children & families at our southern border:
(Providing clean water, shelter, health care, education, and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people.)
(Dedicated to abolishing immigration detention worldwide, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system.)
(Providing free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children, families,and refugees in Texas.)
(The Fronterizo Fianza Fund is a community bond (fianza) fund based in El Paso and serving Far West Texas and New Mexico. Many detained migrants have no chance to be released while they wait the months or years until their trial. When someone does receive a bond, they are often way out of reach for most families, ranging anywhere from $1500-50,000.)
(American Civil Liberties Union defending and preserving the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.)
(non-profit law firm helping low-income children achieve their potential by transforming the public agencies that serve them.)
This is an excellent list of resources compiled by the Texas Tribune.
