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!
