Christmas in Tornillo STL

$10,406 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 159 people in 1 month
Created November 26, 2018
There is a concentration camp for children in the middle of the desert!! Currently 3000 children between the ages of 13 and 17 are being held behind barb wire and fencing in Tornillo, TX. The camp is expanding rapidly. We want to do something about this prison camp because what we saw shook us to our core. This fund is to help a team of 30 experienced St. Louis activists  occupy Tornillo between Dec. 23 and Jan. 1 in collaboration with local El Paso organizations including Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee and Cosecha. Our hope is that it will inspire others to do the same. 

We are organizing a large witnessing presence as well as direct actions.  Christmas in Tornillo will be a tenacious creative RESISTANCE loud and colorful enough the children inside can hear and see us and know NO ESTAS SOLO! You are not alone!

Funding will be used for travel so all who want to go from Stl and surrounding area can regardless of income, a temporary base house that will provide child care, a space to cook for those occupying and a healing space for the ten days we are there. This is so we do not draw on the resources of those caring for immigrants. Thanks to your generosity, we have covered our very basic needs of travel and housing and some food. We are still needing a bit for art supplies and to support the 10 day occupation. All extra funds will be donated to DMSC in El Paso, a small but mighty collective who work daily on the ground supporting immigrant families.
