The humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border has not ended — and neither has our open door policy.
Children continue to be separated from their families at the U.S. border, with reports surfacing every day describing unsafe and unhealthy living conditions, mistreatment at the hands of government officials and for-profit detention center employees, untreated illness and now a rising number of deaths. Meanwhile, there has been a shocking lack of accountability or progress toward reuniting children with their families. Our current border policy is a choice. And we believe it is the wrong one.
The Riveter stands with these children and families.
In 2018, we opened The Riveter’s doors to any individual or organization working on family reunification and human rights at the U.S.-Mexico border. A year has passed and OUR DOORS ARE STILL OPEN in all our locations, including Dallas and Austin. For those of you fighting for these families: Our space is your space. Our resources are your resources.
The Riveter commits to providing co-working and meeting space for anyone organizing efforts around family reunification and the ongoing border crisis, until every last child is out of detention. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or find The Riveter in your city to get involved.
Three things anyone can do to help:
- Donate time or dollars to one of these organizations aiding immigrant families and children:
- Tell your representative to stop funding abuse at the border.
- Donate your airline miles to reunite family members or help public interest lawyers get to the border to provide legal help.
