Want to directly support immigrants detained by ICE during these trying times? Then consider making a donation!
The Detained Refugee Solidarity Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides direct economic and emotional support to immigrants detained by ICE. Every week, we send and receive hundreds of letters from detainees, in which they tell their stories and build friendships with our volunteers.
On top of this, as needed, we make deposits of $10-$20 to the detainees we write to. With this money, refugees can buy food, toiletries, phone calls, and other necessities. Although refugees are allowed to work in the detention centers, they are only paid $1 per day. As a result, they rarely have enough money to meet their needs. Under these conditions, a deposit as small as $10 goes a long way and can be life-changing.
With over 50,000 people currently detained by ICE and COVID rapidly spreading inside detention centers, we need your help more than ever. Any amount helps.
100% of the money raised will go towards paying for mailing supplies (envelopes, printing, stamps) and depositing funds to the commissary accounts of detained immigrants.
