A simple “thank you” seems inadequate, but it is what we can offer to all our frontline workers, many of whom are immigrants. This crisis has only deepened your commitment to serving our community, and I want to share an update on our continuing work.
SAFE has continued its partnership with Congregation Beth Simchat Torah and RUSA LGBT to offer legal options for asylum seekers. Despite the slowdown, deadlines still exist, and many immigrants, including Sophia and Daniel, who are profiled below, still must submit their applications for asylum.
Confronted with the insecurities and uncertainties of this time, our community members have been asking for assistance with food, housing, unemployment, and benefits. SAFE has been connecting them with resources. Recently, SAFE held a housing forum to allow impacted individuals to ask questions of a housing attorney and tenant advocates.
In this unsure time, in which we have lost Lorena Borjas and many others, I am heartened by the response, including your generosity.
Please consider donating to enable us to continue the very difficult work to come.
In safety and solidarity,
