Month 2, Campaign for NILC (National Immigration Law Center)
Fred, Brad, Amy and I have huddled together to choose this months campaign where putting up a $20K match to raise money for NILC. We plan on continuing to choose a different organization every month over the course of this year. Although we could keep going with hope that we can keep this hostile administration at bay. We are choosing organizations that will help and combat the Trump policies that are being set forth. Our first month we raised over $120K.
The National Immigration Law Centers’s mission is we believe that all people who live in the U.S.—regardless of their race, gender, immigration and/or economic status—should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We believe in that too.
The organization puts money into Impact Litigation where they defend the constitutional rights of all Americans. They also do Policy Analysis and Advocacy around issues affecting low-income immigration communities. They also work on Strategic Communications to shape the message around all immigration issues on top of providing legal support and advice to support advocacy work and of course there is more.
As we watch the deportation of immigrants in our country in the most unthoughtful, hateful and terrible way, you can donate here and hopefully make a difference.
Here is how the monthly match works:
- Go to our monthly match page and hit the donate button and give whatever you feel like giving (min is $10).
- After you complete the donation, TWEET your donation out on the post donation page. That will register it for our match.
- If you don’t use Twitter, you can forward your email receipt. The instructions will be on the post donation page. We would vastly prefer you tweet it out if you can.
Crowdrise makes it easy to raise the cash and Twitter creates the awareness. Please use both.
