Thank you for your donations to WICIR. These funds will be used to support the immigrant communities in and around Washtenaw County. Additionally, some of the funds raised here will go to support the estimated 130 families who have fallen victim to the recent workplace raids in Ohio.
The Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights (WICIR) is a volunteer-based group of community members from Washtenaw County who are committed to advocating for immigrants rights. We work together in coalition because we understand that the oppression of one group of people endorses the oppression of any group of people, at anytime. Our immigrant population in Washtenaw County is currently being repeatedly raided by Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE).
We seek to provide a culturally sensitive and supportive urgent response to raid detainees and their families, educate the targeted and allied communities, impact local governmental policies to empower and protect immigrant community members, and to work toward humane national immigration reform that provides a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented workers and people.Learn more about WICIR HERE: http://wicir.org/about-wicir/
