Children are being forcibly separated from their families at the border,
and we need your help to fight back.
As we speak, our government is forcibly separating children from their families. These children are being resettled all over the country and placed into deportation proceedings. Despite their poverty, they will not be provided a court-appointed lawyer, and most of these children will be forced to try to represent themselves in Immigration Court.
Safe Passage Project fundamentally believes that no child should face the immigration process alone. We provide free lawyers to refugee children in New York City and Long Island, for whom being sent back to their native country could be a death sentence. Our team works together to advocate for the fair, compassionate and equal treatment of immigrant children. By providing immigrant children with free lawyers, we address their unmet legal needs as they face deportation to life-threatening situations and empower them to pursue a safe, stable future.
It costs us $2,500 to provide legal and social services to each new client - so we’re trying to raise $100,000 from our friends and allies this week to help us take on an additional 40 clients. Your donation can make all the difference for a refugee child.
