#FamiliesBelongTogether: How to Help at the Border

I've been grasping at straws trying to find ways to help with the border separations that are happening, heavily in my home state of Texas. I'm trying to get my anxiety under control to attend a rally in downtown Dallas tonight (alone, hubs is out of town...EEEK!), but in the meantime, I found this list from Alida Garcia on Twitter...an attorney and activist.

CLICKY.

  1. Thank you for sharing. Some of the mothers have been sent up here to Washington State and luckily our governor and attorney general are already fighting for information and explanations. My heart breaks for these families.

  3. It's all so horrifying - and then the people who appear to think any broken law justifies this sort of inhumanity in retaliation... well, it shows how dark the world has become. Well done for doing your bit to resist.

    1. Yes, indeed, it does. Thank you very much, Simon. It is exhausting, especially in Texas, but we persist.
