The next couple of days are PACKED with ways of supporting immigrants! Some of them you can do from home

The next couple of days are PACKED with ways of supporting immigrants and their families in the Bay and beyond – lots of amazing things you can do to help FROM HOME.
 
Please take a moment to read through this message from Malena from ACILEP to see if there’s anything you can do. The events include a cafe meet up in Oakland, a phone call to ICE (Free Raul!), and a social media storm on the 10th. Spreading the word about these activities is also a great way to show support! Let’s make some history over the next couple days!
