Solidarity at the Border

01/30/2019

The President has shut down the federal government and endangered the lives of thousands of families because of a made-up border security crisis. Meanwhile, a very real humanitarian crisis unfolds at the border. Through the Miguel Contreras Foundation, our 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and our Labor Community Services, the LA Fed has reached out in solidarity to organizations supporting migrants seeking asylum on both sides of the border.
 
We are asking you to join us.
In the U.S., we are supporting the San Diego Rapid Response Network, a coalition of human rights and service organizations working to aid immigrants and their families in the San Diego border region. SDRRN manages two shelters in San Diego providing clothing, backpacks, food, and other basic necessities to migrants from Central America, Haiti, and African nations. Support their critical work and donate here: www.gofundme.com/migrantreliefsd. All donations are tax deductible (via Pay Pal Giving Fund).
In Tijuana, we are supporting Al Otro Lado, a legal service agency providing day-to-day legal services to refugees, deportees, and other migrants in Tijuana, Mexico and throughout Southern California. Through their Exodus Project, they help protect the rights of thousands of migrants seeking asylum. They host daily know-your rights training and legal orientation workshops in migrant shelters in Tijuana, Mexico, serving an average of 80 to 100 asylum seekers per day.
