Join LULAC Members on the National Activation Day and Host a Donation Event in your City

Save the Date: September 6, 2014

To mitigate the needs of relocated child refugees, LULAC Members are encouraged to host events nationwide on September 6, 2014, for National Activation Day. Held at local Feeding America food banks, councils will organize events that provide critically needed items, pro bono legal advice, and, as available, health screenings. Activation will take place in cities with a high concentration of relocated refugee children, which include Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; New York City, New York; Miami, Florida; and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, among others.

Participating councils will receive a branded gear package, which provides shirts for organizers and volunteers, grocery bags to use for door-to-door food donation collections, and a banner to display during events. Councils that are currently active in protecting the border children are encouraged to reach out to the national office for material and promotions support.

Also discussed at the Livestream briefing were the international circumstances that resulted in the large migration of refugee children, the political arena surrounding proposed legislation for the border children, and long term solutions for the humanitarian crisis. Members are highly encouraged to meet with, call, email, or tweet their Representatives during the August recess to tell them that deporting migrant children and DREAMers is not acceptable. The policy messaging points are available for members to implement.
