Rise to Reunite

$11,140 of $80,000 goal

Raised by 123 people in 6 months
Created July 14, 2018
Here's your opportunity to give back and support immigrant families!


Rise to Reunite
is raising funds for Al Otro Lado, a Los Angeles/Tijuana based non-profit , which provides legal assistance and services to migrants, refugees, and deportees. They help children reunite with their families on either side of the border and guide asylum seekers through the Tijuana point of entry.

Al Otro Lado is coordinating the efforts on the ground for the Central American exodus/migrant caravan.  7000 people have now arrived to Tijuana  and Al Otro Lado is providing legal services and also assisting in humanitarian efforts.

Our current goal is to raise $80,000 to pay for one full-time attorney for one year who can take on hundreds of cases. The more money we raise, the more staff will be brought on board to provide immediate and direct legal assistance to the families who need it most.

Please continue to share this page and let’s continue to make a difference.

Greetings Rise to Reunite supporters!
We are happy to share that we are doing a Pop-Up Happy Hour event to continue to raise money for Al Otro Lado!

There are still more than 500 children separated from their families. We are not giving up on them! The lawyer would come in handy in helping reunite them.

You have donated, shared our page and united with us for this cause... now let's have a drink!

We hope to see you there! Please feel free to share this event with everyone and anyone!!
