Most of us are outraged by the human rights violations that are happening at the border. Children are being ripped from parents and asylum seekers are being treated harshly and unlawfully. The good news is that six trans women have been granted asylum parole and just arrived to live with us in Charlottesville while they proceed through the immigration courts.
We are thrilled to host these chicas! And we also need significant financial assistance. We want the chicas to have all of the support they need and deserve. When taking into account lawyer fees, transportation costs, food and bills support for host households, cell phones to contact their loved ones, and general living costs, we estimate it will cost $8,000 for one chica for 6 months.
Please help us support these six courageous women!
