Stand with the migrant caravan
In October 2018, caravans of migrants began traveling north from Central America. The groups included people of all ages, including families and children – many of whom are escaping violence and poverty and seeking asylum in the U.S. and Mexico.
While the Trump administration exploited the caravan to advance its anti-immigrant agenda, AFSC organized a very different response. With support from communities across the country:
- We provided food, water, and other necessities to migrants along the route, operated human rights brigades to help keep people safe, and offered migrants legal services and counseling.
- We organized the "Love Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice" week of action in December 2018, bringing more than 200 faith leaders to the U.S.-Mexico border for a mass action and supporting solidarity events across the U.S.
Thank you to all of our supporters who made this possible!
