100% of this weekend's proceeds got to pro bono attorney work for immigrants and asylum seekers!

Our constitution protects the right to due process for both citizens and non-citizens alike. Access to legal counsel can be the difference between life and death. 121 are people being held in Sheridan Federal Correctional Institution who have been denied legal representation since being arrested at the Southern Oregon border in mid May. Innovation Law Lab, along with ACLU of Oregon, sued the federal government to allow legal aid, which was finally just granted. ILL works to provide legal aid for immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in need of safe and secure futures for themselves and their families. Donating all of our proceeds this weekend is the least we can do. There will be a limited team of us working Saturday so that others can be downtown for #familiesbelongtogether. Sometimes, just being kind to ourselves and each other is the most powerful action we can take. Show up wherever and however you can. ❤️ On Instagram - @innovationlawlab & @aclu_or https://innovationlawlab.org/fci-sheridan-legal-response/ & https://act.moveon.org/event/families-belong-together_attend1/search/
