We know that this is a terrible understatement right now. The Trump administration's disgusting "zero-tolerance" policy is separating children from their families and is unspeakably horrible. This is a Human Rights violation and is doing irreparable harm to these children. We are heartbroken and deeply disappointed in our country. But there are many ways to help!
1: CONTACT YOUR REPS! Especially if you are represented by a Republican. Call 202-224-3121. State your zip code. When connected, tell them “I live in ___. I support SB3036, the ‘Keep Families Together Act’.” Repeat.
2: Use #ResistBot to text your members of Congress. Text RESIST to 50409 and it will help you contact your elected officials. Repeat.
3: Donate to #ActBlue (link in bio), which splits donations between 12 different groups giving the most bang for your donation buck. Money goes to groups including, #AlOtroLado, #TheFlorenceProject, @TheYoungCenter for Immigrant Children’s Rights, @WeBelongTogether, and @SupportKind.
4: Contact ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) by writing them here or call them at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE. Register complaints with the Department of Homeland Security. (Links avail on FB)
5: While money is best, if you want to donate essential items like diapers, wipes, shampoo, and soap directly to immigrant children, @Baby2Baby and Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) set up a baby registry at @Target.
We'll be donating all funds donated to us to #ActBlue until Congress passes legislation ending this horrific policy.
We'll also be mobilizing locally in Los Angeles - stay tuned for more info on marches and protest coming up. #StayNasty
