Abel ACLU's summer program.

My name is Abel, and I'm a high school student at Health, Sciences, and Human Services High school. I'm raising money for my flight to Washington D.C. and the tuition cost of staying at Georgetown University for one week for ACLU's Summer Advocacy Institute program, that admit 20 high school juniors and seniors around the nation. We will work with politicians, activists, and the nations capital in order to increase our knowledge about defending human rights and civil liberties, and to advocate for issues occurring in our country. The deadline to fully enroll for this program, including costs, is April 29th. I'm a highly motivated individual who is interested and have a passion in creating change in our community, and fighting for these issues regarding human rights and civil liberties. This program would be my first opportunity to pursue what I really love and enjoy, and give me that start to exploring careers that relate to my interests of creating change and advocating for human rights. Due to my family's circumstances, I cannot afford the cost of attending ACLU. I am kindly asking for your support through donations in order for me to attend. I truly appreciate your assitance.
