Asylum for Kevin

Our friend Kevin escaped from violent gangs in El Salvador and he is pursuing his legal case for asylum. Kevin spent the past two years hiding inside his home, unable to go to school or work for fear for his life after gangs brutally murdered his friends. As the situation grew more dangerous, Kevin’s family made the difficult decision to send him to the United States, where his father has lived since Kevin was ten. Once Kevin reached the border, he was picked up by ICE agents and was sent to a prison in New Jersey where he spent two months in detention. We posted the bond for Kevin and flew him to Los Angeles where he has been reunited with his father, after twelve years of separation. Now we are helping to raise money to pay for his legal fees.

Kevin is a very bright and kind young man, motivated to learn English, go to college and find stable employment in our community. Kevin loves movies, classic rock and science fiction books, and he wishes to become an architect one day. We are deeply grateful for your assistance in securing Kevin’s safety and his freedom to pursue his dreams.

We are artists living in Los Angeles and we've known Kevin's father for over a decade. The money for this campaign will go to an account in Lara's name on Kevin's behalf, and the funds will be used exclusively to hlep Kevin pay his legal fees.
