For the past six months, Governor Abbott has been busing asylum seekers to DC from the border as part of a racist and cruel publicity stunt. Both Mayor Bowser and President Biden have largely ignored our new neighbors. However, the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community has shown up every single day to welcome our folks.
The community has come together to provide food, housing, transportation, clothes, and medical support, among other things. Since April, we have spent over $450,000, not including the supplies people have purchased off our wishlist or in-kind donations. This effort is almost entirely grassroots funded.
The buses are not stopping, and we need your support!
Other ways to support:
- Sign up to volunteer
- Buy stuff off our wishlist
- Buy a Melt ICE t-shirt
- More information and all the links
The migrant solidarity mutual aid network comprises 20+ DMV area community organizations and hundreds more individual volunteers committed to supporting migrants being bused to DC from Texas. Anchored by Peace House DC, Beloved Community Incubator, East of the River Mutual Aid, and Sanctuary DMV, the network has been showing up to welcome our new neighbors since April through solidarity not charity.
Funds from the gofundme will be going to Beloved Community Incubator.
