Help Alerta Migratoria Raise $20000

$15,580 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 170 people in 31 months
Alerta Migratoria NC
on behalf of Viridiana Martinez
We are Alerta Migratoria NC, a group of low paid, grassroots community organizers. We work to stop deportations.

At this moment, we are supporting two families whose fathers have gone into protective sanctuary in order to continue fighting their deportations. We have also been working on ICE hold cases and have successfully gotten ICE detainers removed. 

Our work has united many families all across North Carolina as we are the only statewide rapid response deportation defense network. 

We do not have an office anywhere as we believe in meeting people where they are at. 

To date, we have only received one grant and some private funding. But our biggest contributors are individuals. A donation as small as $20 goes a long way. 

Your donation supports the following:

- Pay the outrageous costs of phone calls with detained family members at $3.75 per 15 minutes of phone time
- Maintaining a website
- The community hotline
- Shipping costs (i.e. mailing documents)
- Transportation costs (gas and housing)
- Materials

Thank you in advance for your donation.

Hello everyone! This is Viridiana on behalf of Alerta Migratoria NC. Just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who continues to contribute to our work. I also wanted to let you all know that we are raising funds to cover expenses for our work this year. The funds you donate are being withdrawn by me and are used for several things, including transportation expenses, food, and supplies. Portions of the funds are also sometimes given to volunteers or other Alerta members to cover expenses incurred from our work.

Thank you, again, for all of your support. You can also contribute by volunteering with us. Sign up here:

Our biggest hope is that one day in the near future, we no longer have to fundraise to do this work because families will no longer be separated by detention and deportation. One day. Until then, THANK YOU!
