Father’s Day: Support for Immigrant Families, Resistance to Inhumane Policies

35511048_10156538318564343_6662001769431695360_nWow, talk about Father’s Day political action!

A few days ago, we were feeling helpless in the face of inhumane news of the US government separating children from parents.

Then we took action and organized a candlelight vigil in solidarity with immigrant families.

The result:

  1. +$12K raised to support legal NGOs helping immigrant families
  2. 200 people attending the vigil on Father’s Day
  3. Coverage on NBC, Telemundo and Fox (which is kinda hilarious, but the local team is OK)

If you’re mad, sad or feeling helpless. Take action. Great things can happen.
