Join us at the St. James Tavern for fundraiser to benefit two charities: HOLA Ohio and RAICES Texas (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services). There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door.

HOLA Ohio is the primary nonprofit working with the 114 people who were rounded up in an ICE raid in Sandusky, Ohio.

RAICES Texas’s #freeourfamilies website best explains its bond fund:

Parents separated from their children at the border (and other immigrants placed in detention) can’t get released from ICE custody to reunite with their families until they pay the full amount of their immigration bond. Bonds are set at a MINIMUM of $1500, and are usually in the range of $5-10K, even for asylum seekers without any criminal history.

Unlike in the criminal system, bail bond companies either do not help people in immigration proceedings or impose very strict requirements, like private ankle monitors (which families have to pay to “rent”).

Babies as young as four months old are being separated from their families at the US border, as part of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration crackdown.

Children are being held in cages on US soil.

Breastfeeding infants are being ripped from their mother’s breasts.

Parents are being deported while their children remain in the US.

The time for action is now.

Columbus must fight this vile, racist and anti-humanitarian policy. Join us on June 28, to come together as a city, to support and help reunify these families.
