Cookies Not Cages

Created June 14, 2019
El Cerrito Progressives is working to help support East Bay Sanctuary Covenant to raise money for their work with unaccompanied minors.  Since 2014, EBSC has provided legal assistance to more than 600 unaccompanied children fleeing gang violence, human trafficking, and domestic abuse in their home countries.

 With their help, these youth are often able to obtain asylum, reunify with their family members, and finally, feel safe. 

In 2018, more than 50,000 unaccompanied children were stopped at the border; in January 2019, apprehensions of minors traveling alone had increased by 40%.[1]

 There are currently not enough lawyers to meet the needs of the growing numbers of unaccompanied children seeking legal services.  We are helping raise money so that EBSC can hire additional staff to assist with the legal cases of these minors. 

El Cerrito Progressives has a goal of raising at least $10,000 for EBSC through this gofundme and our community bakes sales Cakes Not Cages. 

We have all seen the pictures of these poor children being detained. Help us support them in being reunited with their families and obtaining sanctuary in the United States.

Today we had both our protest for Immigration Justice at the front of El Cerrito Plaza and a bake sale over near the sushi place. Between passing a bucket at the protest and the bake sale we raised over $1,000 for East Bay Sanctuary Covenant. With this money here and a few other donations we have almost $2500 which is 25% of our $10,000 goal. We will be collecting at our 4th of July Booth and doing 8 more bake sales. 4 each at El Cerrito Plaza and Kensington Farmers Market once a month July-October. At this rat maybe we can even beat our goal. Thank you to our community for supporting us!!
