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%.
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.
