Happy Holidays! Good fortune to everyone on the planet!
The holidays are here, and we are all balancing safety with celebration, and isolation with festivities.
As you navigate this season, we ask you to extend generosity to people migrating to the United States. There are families waiting in difficult conditions in the Mexicali shelters with the hope of crossing the US border. And there are people held in the Imperial Regional Detention Center who are caught up in the legal process of immigrating to the United States.
Desert Support for Asylum Seekers is asking for your support this Giving Tuesday:
Your donations bring humanity to a system that causes immense suffering at every stage. Even a small amount will go a long way to meeting basic human needs and brining joy to a dire situation.
