Support the people of the migrant caravans!

Join our efforts to provide humanitarian aid and protect human rights for asylum seekers

Donate Today

In January 2020, AFSC launched an emergency campaign to support migrants traveling in large groups–known as caravans–through Central America. The caravans include people of all ages, including families and children, who are escaping violence and poverty and seeking refuge in the U.S. and Mexico.  

Unfortunately, the U.S. has turned its back on its moral and legal obligation to asylum seekers. Since 2018, the Trump administration has enacted policies to keep asylum seekers away. And recently, migrants attempting to cross into Mexico were met with violent immigration enforcement, with many deported or detained in inhumane conditions. 

You can help. Donate today to help fund AFSC’s emergency response to deliver humanitarian aid and protect the human rights of asylum seekers.
