August through the end of September, join our online taco or beer challenge to raise funds for abortion access and immigrant / border justice!
For ToBC 2019 we will be doing things a little bit differently. The challenge will be the same. The difference will be where your donation dollars are going. While eating delicious tacos, a food that comes from Mexico, we will be fundraising for and uplifting local and national organizations that are doing immigrant justice / border justice work at this, one of the most difficult times for immigrants in our country’s history.
We will be fundraising for one of our favorite abortion funds, La Frontera Fund! They are a practical support fund located in the Rio Grande Valley and their day to day work is very much at the intersection of reproductive justice and immigrant justice.
We will also be fundraising for Solidarity with Edith Espinal and Miriam in Sanctuary. Edith Espinal has been a part of the Columbus, Ohio community for over 20 years, Miriam Vargas for 14, and both are currently forced to live in sanctuary because of cruel and unjust deportation policies. Family, friends, and community are fighting to keep Edith and Miriam not only home in Columbus, but also for them to be free to be at home with their families where they belong and deserve to be!
We're also sending some funds to the Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund who are supporting folks and families impacted by the ICE raids and related firings of immigrants in Mississippi. There are so many pregnant folks who recently gave birth impacted by the raids and they are helping these families stay afloat. You can also directly donate to them HERE or buy baby supplies from their GENERAL WISHLIST OR PERIOD/DIAPER SUPPLY WISHLIST.
And big news, WE'RE DOING A MATCH! WHO/O will be matching all donations up to $5000!!
Thanks for being awesome and directly helping to support both reproductive and immigrant justice locally and beyond!
