Immigration Advocacy Organizations

There are other ways to act now besides letter writing.  Below is a list of organizations that are working to alleviate the current situation under the “zero tolerance” policy.  Some are well known, while others are local organizations.

Note: RAICES Texas (Refugee and Immigrant Education and Legal Services), is on the front lines of the battle for immigrant families on the U.S./Mexico border. They are currently raising money through Facebook, and to date have raised nearly $17 million. Go to this article in the Washington Post for more information on the fundraiser.  You can donate to RAICES by clicking here.
