It's Giving Tuesday, time to assuage the guilt of yesterday's Cyber Monday sprees with some charitable contributions.
There are a LOT of wonderful immigration-related 501(3)(c) organizations that you might consider donating to today. Here are just a few that we've noted in years' past:
- The Safe Passage Project is all about representing children in immigration proceedings.
- Muslim Advocates have done excellent work fighting Trump's travel bans.
- Educators for Fair Consideration works on "empowering undocumented young people to achieve educational and career goals."
- The Florence Project provides free legal services to men, women, and unaccompanied children in immigration custody in Arizona
- Immigrant Legal Resource Center promotes and defends immigrant rights.
- Northwest Immigrant Rights Project provides direct services to immigrants.
- IRIS, "a non-sectarian, independent nonprofit refugee resettlement agency that has welcomed more than 5,000 refugees to Connecticut since 1982."
- HIAS, whose mission is to "Welcome the stranger. Protect the refugee." (The Pittsburgh attacker railed against this organization on Twitter.)
- RAICES, "the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas."
- Ayuda, providing immigration legal services in the DC area.
- Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights, championing "the best interests of children who arrive in the United States on their own, from all corners of the world."
- Orange County Justice Fund, which aims "to ensure that no Orange County resident is forced to defend themself from deportation without an attorney, and to provide support so that those individuals eligible to be released from detention can do so without being financially devastated."
- Al Otro Lado, "serving indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Tijuana and Los Ángeles."
- Kidsave, facilitating international adoptions of older children.
