Thanks for watching the Reunite Families Fundraiser Update video.
Here's a story of one of the mothers helped with the money we raised. “I never imagined I would be away from my son for a single day, let alone months.” She was separated from her child at the border and stayed at Casa de Paz after her bond was paid and she was released from detention:
I wish you could have seen how happy she was to finally be free, and at the same time the look of pain and panic in her eyes wondering where her son was and if he was okay. And if she would ever see him again.
100% of the $16,414 donated at the fundraiser will be used to pay for more parents' bonds and their travel costs to reunite with their children. When I meet the parents after their release from immigrant detention I am going to show them these pictures taken at the event so they can see that people DO care about them and they are NOT alone. A big thanks to Silver Cedar Photography for capturing these beautiful photos.
Families belong together,
