This holiday season, not everyone will get the chance to see their families, eat a meal, or sleep at night without fearing for their lives. Victims of violence and persecution risk everything by leaving their countries of origin in hopes of a better future. They travel hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles to the U.S. looking for hope, peace, and humanitarian protection. Among these survivors are children like Ximena*, who escaped domestic violence, or asylum seekers like Marcelo*, who fled torture, discrimination, and retaliation for his political views and sexual orientation.
Imagine running away for the chance to live without fear. Imagine then being detained at the border without an attorney present. You can make a tremendous difference for these survivors. Donate today to provide access to justice and humanitarian protection for individuals who, just like you, want to live a safe and secure life.
Your donation gives these children, women, and men a voice in the justice system by providing access to free legal representation for those who need it most.
Please consider giving the gift of hope this holiday season by making a donation today. Every gift helps!
