As a community, we can no longer look away and assume the issues around immigration are not affecting our people. The truth is, immigration is affecting the Habesha community in a multitude of ways including DACA, family separation, Immigration Detention and Asylum. Needless to say, there has been an outcry for help from the Habesha Community, and we have a responsibility to respond. Currently, many of these people are stuck at the border and in detention centers across the United States. We learned this after we visited one of detention centers with the hopes to  provide aid at the border. To our surprise, found so many of our own in a state of fear and confusion in desperate need of support. Because of the lack of financial resources, information, and even translators, most are ultimately deported back to the life they were fleeing. Others in our community are young Dreamers who can't afford DACA renewals but have every right to the life they have always known.  We have seen many other communities set up funds to help those suffering, however, the Habesha community has not mobilized to provide their people the same level of support. So we decided to join forces and create this campaign in order to bring back hope to the Habesha Dream.
