This was Congressmember Ilhan Omar’s response when she learned the chants echoed “send her back.”
My whole life I have wholeheartedly focus my energy in philanthropy work. As you know everywhere I go, I put my full passion and dedication to make an impact. Today, I humbly ask you to help me meet my membership goal by August 10th. I need ten new individuals to join. Are you with me?
At the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), we make every effort, every day, to move forward by educating people about their rights when ICE knocks on their door, taking them through the process of renewing their DACA permit or citizenship application, conducting workshops in libraries, churches, or private homes, and sharing our community stories with leaders and lawmakers to ensure they do their job and represent our community well.
WHAT CHIRLA DOES CANNOT BE DONE WITHOUT MEMBERS AND YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
We are in the middle of a membership drive and I would love it if you become a CHIRLA member for only $25 a year.
Some people may try to keep us down, but together, I commit to you we will help, even the most vulnerable amongst us, remain standing and moving forward stronger than ever.
