    Donate to Organizations Providing Legal Support for Immigrants and Refugees

    $21,415.00 raised
    GOAL: $20,000.00

    UPDATE (2/10) We doubled our goal to $15,000 and within 24 hours, we met that! So as we hit the homestretch and our February 14th deadline, we're bumping up our goal once more - to $20,000! This would mean $4,000 for each organization, providing a substantial demonstration of our commitment to these communities and the dedicated efforts of those working within and serving them. Thank you for being part of this powerful act of solidarity!

    UPDATE (2/8): Wow - this is what solidarity can look like. 13.5 hours after making this call to mobilize our resources, we met our goal of raising $1,500 per organization for a total of $7,500. It is clear we can do more.

    To build on this overwhelmingly positive response and success, we are doubling our goal to $15,000 and humbly ask for your support as we engage our chapter, our networks, our comrades in this fight. 

    Our collective power can do more than we thought possible - thank you!
