Let us not be overwhelmed by the work needed right now to serve those who are in need.
There are many ways to help.
I've chosen to support @raicestexas a law center dedicated to refugee and immigrant education and legal services, who are working directly with refugees at the southern border. Their donation page is linked above.
For more ways to act on behalf of the #keepfamiliestogether bill and to donate to legal funds, alongside some grassroots efforts, check out: @naacp @aclu @carecen_la @chirla_org @raicestexas @kamalaharris @amplifierart @undocumedia @paolamendoza @hinterland_empire
It's imperative to note that our country was literally built on the oppression of others, and still operates as such. Incarceration today is what slavery was before... a for profit machine being fed by pseudo policy and governmentally enforced terrorism, lacking any humanity and justice.
We need to come together and rally, find ways to support one another and fight with our whole hearts, still. We cannot change our past, but what we do right now, every present moment given, certainly influences our future and the future of many. Don't stop there. Keep. fighting. for all. Silence is complicity. "The point is, there is no feasible excuse for what are, for what we have made of ourselves. We have chosen to put profits before people, money before morality, dividends before decency, fanaticism before fairness, and our own trivial comforts before the unspeakable agonies of others."
