Help Our Immigration & Sanctuary Efforts this Month
Take Action: Make your support for immigrants and refugees visible. Put a sign in your window showing your support. Make your own, or use these resources: https://www.firmaction.org/freedomtogether, https://www.hias.org/hias-signs. Show your support on social media as well. Post a message of support for immigrants and refugees on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Follow and repost from organizations such as WAISN (https://www.waisn.org/), HIAS (https://www.hias.org/), and Al Otro Lado (https://alotrolado.org/).
Donate Items: With the Biden Administration’s increase in the refugee admissions cap, it’s a perfect time to help refugees being resettled in our area by donating a bicycle, donating household items and furniture, or purchasing new items from the welcome kits and wish list of World Relief Seattle: https://worldreliefseattle.org/donate-stuff
Make a Monetary Donation to Seattle’s Project Feast: The good news is that AIDNW has seen an increase in people released from the detention center in Tacoma. In particular, persons transported from the border to Tacoma are being released by a dozen or more at a time. AIDNW could use funds to assist with purchasing bus and plane tickets to help get these folks to their final destination. Donate at AIDNW’s website: https://aidnw.org/how-to-donate/.
