Free Ricardo Fierro

Raised by 96 people in 10 months
Created August 3, 2018
Longtime community leader and volunteer, Ricardo Fierro, was taken into custody by Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE) on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at his home in Racine, Wisconsin.

Fierro is best known in the Racine, WI community as the former local director of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. In recent years, Fierro served on the City of Racine Mayoral Advisory Board, Immigration Task Force Chairman for the Racine Interfaith Coalition, the Racine Unified School District Middle School Transformation Committee and the RUSD Diversity and Equity Task Force.


Fierro was elected president of local council 347 of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), and enthusiastically participated in a host of volunteer activities too numerous to mention.  

Ricardo and his family need your help now more than ever.

As the main source of income for his family of seven children, his mother and physically disabled brother, Ricardo’s detention has presented an unimaginable hardship to his family and loved ones.

Ricardo and his family are in desperate need of donations for his legal defense, as well as food, shelter and transportation  for his family during this stressful time.

The fight to return Ricardo to his family and the Racine community requires your help today.
