Learn how you can get involved!
No doubt you've been following the news on the human rights crisis on our southern border over the last few weeks. You may have already heard the good news that a federal judge in San Diego issued a preliminary injunction Tuesdayat the request of the American Civil Liberties Union that calls for all children affected by the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy to be reunited with their parents within 30 days. Under the order, children younger than 5 years old must be reunited with their parents within 14 days, while older children must be reunited with their parents within 30 days. Within 10 days, federal authorities must allow parents to call their children if they're not already in contact with them.
It's critical that we all keep up the pressure and push for comprehensive immigration reform - for the rights of migrants, asylum seekers and undocumented residents in our country - not just a short-term fix to this disaster that's come to a head and that has garnered national attention.
Below is a list of resources and opportunities to take action in solidarity. Updated July 17.Read more

THIS MOTHER'S DAY Join the National Bail Out Collective
to Help Bail Out Incarcerated Mothers!
This Mother's Day, the National Bail Out Collective is bailing out mamas in cities around the country to give incarcerated mothers an opportunity to spend Mother’s Day with their families. Last year they bailed out over 100 mamas and caregivers, and provide life-sustaining services to those who need it. This year they're expanding their efforts and are working to advance critical policy changes and transform the systems that put our people in cages because they are poor, Black, unwell or in crisis.
National Mama’s Bail Out Day is coordinated effort by more than a dozen organizations to reunite families on Mother's Day and bring attention to the true costs of money bail and mass incarceration. In the tradition of literally buying our people’s freedom, we are setting Black women and femmes free from the jaws of incarceration in time for Mother’s Day.
Tonight tens of thousands of women will sleep in a cage, simply because they could not afford to pay bail. At least 80 percent of them are mothers and most of them are only guilty of being poor, unable to access health care, or being survivors. In fact, over 86% of incarcerated women have survived physical or sexual abuse and many will experience additional abuse while imprisoned in our local jails.
