FROM JONAH’S DAD
At this moment in history, no issue is of greater importance to me than immigrant rights. You certainly know as much as I about our current government’s draconian policies. Not only have the doors to our nation been slammed shut to most but the most privileged, but mistreatment — especially of children — has become a stain on America’s record of compassionate human rights.
RAICES, one of The Jonah Maccabee Foundation’s grant recipients, is the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. With offices throughout Texas, RAICES has an army of attorneys who fight for the littlest guy out there — the aspiring but powerless newcomer. RAICES provides a pathway into America’s legal system that many of those coming through our southern border are being routinely denied and worse.
I like to think that Jonah would be on the front lines of this battle. What I know for sure is that he continually inspires me to do what I can, to do what he cannot, to make a positive impact in this very difficult world, especially for those who need help navigating an unwelcoming system.
I humbly ask that you donate to our December campaign, “Jonah-Inspired,” so that together — you and I and all the beautiful, kind folks who join us on this shared journey — can help RAICES defend the invisible victims whose only crime is seeking a better life for themselves and their families.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation
