LC Dems Issue Resolution on Crisis at the Border
The Little Compton Democratic Town Committee adopted the following resolution earlier this month in response to the crisis at the border - see below.
One of our email list members was also kind enough to forward this information about another sister organization:
Annunciation House in El Paso is another organization working on the border crises. AH is still receiving asylum seekers, while operating on a shoestring budget. In the last few months AH has spent over $1,000,000, for housing alone, a lot for an organization that exists solely through donations. Ruben Garcia, founder and director of Annunciation House has been on NPR and national news. Donations can be sent to: Annunciation House 1003 E. San Antonio Avenue El Paso, TX. 79901-2620 915-545-4509
Resolution on the Crisis at the Border
We the Democratic Town Committee of Little Compton, Rhode Island condemn the United States Government's inhumane treatment of refugees, immigrants, and asylum seekers, and the racism that fuels these policies.
We call upon our local, state, and federal representatives to use their powers to ensure our government will immediately and permanently:
We encourage our neighbors to contact their legislators to express concern about these issues and to donate money and/or volunteer for organizations providing services to those affected such as RAICES, AMOR, DORCAS and the ACLU.
Our government’s current policies and actions are inhumane and are a clear violation of human rights. They must be stopped now. History tells us that silence is complicity.
Let it be known that this resolution was passed and adopted by a unanimous vote by the Little Compton Democratic Town Committee on August 6th, 2019.
