BENEFITING: SOUTHWEST DETROIT IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE CENTER
Isaac Piecuch wrote -Southwest Detroit is the most diverse community in our city. Newcomers from Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa find a home in this historic Detroit neighborhood--near the busiest border crossing between the U.S. and Canada. At the Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center, we are here to help refugees and immigrants with all their legal needs. All of our services are either free or at a greatly reduced cost; our goal is to ensure justice for all, particularly new Americans who are traditionally underserved and underrepresented. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to fund the applications of four asylum seekers, people seeking refuge in America from violence and oppression overseas. Without the money, SWIRC will be unable to effectively help these people; all donations are going towards a process that could save lives.
