Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy for immigrants seeking to enter the United States has had devastating consequences. To date, thousands of children (including newborn infants) have been forcibly separated from their parents and placed in detention facilities. (This article summarizes the Administration’s policy).
New Yorkers are organizing to put an end to these inhumane acts. Here’s how you can join these efforts:
- June 20 is World Refugee Action Day and there will be an action in New York City
- Saturday June 30, there will be a mass rally/action here in New York City
- NYIC has a Google Doc of “Things you can do” updated with local events that they keep up to date
- You can donate to a coalition of frontline organizations working this issue from different angles with a single gift
North Star Fund will continue to support organizing that recognizes the full humanity of immigrants, just as we have done for decades. Follow us on Twitter to learn more about how our grantees are organizing in real time.
