In light of the recent events at the Texas border, we’ve decided to dedicate the last two weeks of June to raising money for RAICES Texas. Separating young children from their families is never ok. This isn’t about politics, this is about reuniting families.
About RAICES Texas
Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. With offices in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. As an organization that combines expertise developed from the daily practice of immigration law with a deep commitment to advocacy, RAICES is unique among immigration organizations. A diverse staff of 130 attorneys, legal assistants, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state. In 2017, RAICES staff closed 51,000 cases at no cost to the client. Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve every day as our attorneys and legal assistants provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.

R+R is looking forward to being able to make an impact on the families who have been separated. We are donating 10% of each sale until the end of June to RAICES, plus, we’ll be matching dollar for dollar. We (and our makers!) believe in their cause are thrilled to be able to contribute.
