Together, again.

Last week, we covered the congressional hearing with DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. As we push for greater accountability and raise awareness to the humanitarian crisis at the border, we can find comfort in uplifting stories like the one below.

Together Rising‘s mission is to “transform collective heartbreak into collective action.” Visit their website to find out how you can make a donation and get involved.

Our hope is that all families can be reunited.

SWIPE LEFT FOR AN IMPOSSIBLE REUNION YOU MADE POSSIBLE. After the administration tore thousands of children away their parents, it then deported hundreds of parents without their children. Due to the administration’s failure to keep records, 90 of these deported parents were impossible to find. They had no cell phones, lived in rural villages and many only spoke rare indigenous languages. Finding these 90 parents -much less reuniting them with their babies -was impossible. But you are the people of the impossible. So, through @together.rising you funded the warriors at @alotrolado_org and @justiceinmotion with $1,090,000 to set up a network of advocates to trek through the mountains to find these parents. THEY FOUND ALL 90. One is J Jesus. He and his precious 6-year old son Ariel came to the US in May to seek asylum due to gang violence. Even though he begged for Ariel to be deported with him, officials tore Ariel from his arms before he was deported. Ariel’s dad, mom & sister were losing hope that they’d ever see him again. Six year old Ariel was in shelters for months. He hadn't seen his family for 10 months. Until Friday. On Friday, the @Together.Rising team took Ariel to the airport to await a plane bringing his mother, father & sister back into his arms. Right before his family landed, he looked up at Sister and said in Spanish: "I don't remember what they are like." She showed him a picture of his family, and he beamed with joy, recognition and relief. He was in his family's arms just minutes later. Thank you for being the people of the impossible. We won’t rest until every family is reunited. 17 parents we crossed with are still being detained in terrible conditions. We need help so they can be reunited. Every Ariel deserves to be in their parents' arms, so please give what you can. 100% of what we receive from your tax-deductible gifts will go to advocate for, support and reunite these families.
