You can help keep families together!

Children belong with their families and in their communities, not incarcerated. Your donation to the Florence Project will provide legal representation and social services to migrant men, women, and children during this crisis. Every dollar raised helps separated parents and children, abused, abandoned, and neglected youth, and asylum seekers seeking safety in the United States.

You can provide hope from our, small but mighty, state to these families by donating, attending, and bringing crayons and coloring books-- a specific request from the lawyers and social workers of The Florence Project.

The Florence Project runs "Know Your Rights" events for adults, but importantly also for children. Their Children’s Program educates, empowers, and provides legal assistance to the more than 500 unaccompanied immigrant minors detained for removal proceedings before the Phoenix Immigration Court. While in ICE custody, they are held in secure facilities, contract shelters, group homes, or foster care placements under the auspices of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Children’s Initiative conducts “know your rights” presentations, individual intakes for all children and either represents them in court or refers their cases to pro bono attorneys in the community.

$150 covers the cost of the weekly sessions The Florence Project lawyers conduct in detention centers, the main access those detained-- of all ages-- have to help.

A Note From Jasmine Singh

The Florence Project is one of very few organizations in Arizona providing direct services to detainees in southern Arizona, my home state (which my parents were lucky to immigrate to in the 70s). The organization has been working on the front lines supporting detainees, asylum applicants, and immigrants for more than 30 years. In the last 2 years alone, they have served more than 25,000 people. Of those clients, over 17,000 were children. (Let that sink in.) The Florence Project typically sees between 500-600 open cases a year for kids (for the entire year)--but to date this year, they have opened more than 800 cases concerning children who have been detained. In addition, they usually see around 100-150 cases of family separation each year--to date this year that number is already at 425. The Florence Project cannot continue to do this work without our support. They need money to hire more staff and paralegals to assist with filings, to hire lawyers to take asylum cases, to post bond for detainees--to do more work, faster. The Florence Project staff are tirelessly working day and night, without enough support and resources. Every dollar they receive counts. We are raising money for the Florence Project through Dincert (dinner + concert), an initiative we started in Oakland, CA. Through music, art, community and food, we support non-profits providing direct services and strengthen the resistance to injustice through community and hope. We host Dincerts not just to raise awareness and money, but to remind people that our humanity is common, our struggle and joys are connected. We hope that we can rely on your support in uplifting the folks on the ground doing the hard work.
