BENEFITING: WESPAC FOUNDATION INC
Community for All seeks to raise funds to support residents of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown impacted by the threat of deportation.
The federal government’s policy on immigration is being felt deeply throughout our area. Fifty percent of the residents of Sleepy Hollow are of Hispanic origin, and 38% are foreign born. More of us are undocumented than we might suspect. All are crucial and valued members of our community.
Since the election, our undocumented neighbors are grappling with overwhelming fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, with little legal recourse. It is traumatic and debilitating to live each day not knowing if or when one’s family might be abruptly torn apart.
This fundraising campaign seeks to build local capacity and mobilize resources in support of families facing the threat of deportation.
Community for All will fund the development of a sustainable grassroots infrastructure that: 1) engages local voices to identify needs and organize capacity; 2) leverages the expertise of local agencies to provide legal aid; and 3) strengthens human and social services.
Donations will directly go to areas such as legal aid, passports for U.S.-born children to help with reunification, social support for children who parents face deportation, critical aid to impacted families, and local organizing.
