Organizations supporting the rights of immigrants and refugees:

(For more suggestions see https://www.bustle.com/p/9-immigration-organizations-to-donate-to-if-you-want-to-support-daca-recipients-80757.)

National Immigration Law Center: Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

New York Immigration Coalition: The New York Immigration Coalition aims to achieve a fairer and more just society that values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all. The NYIC promotes immigrants' full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York's diverse immigrant communities.

Arab American Family Support Center (New York City): The Arab-American Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to immigrant communities throughout New York City.

Action NYC: ActionNYC connects New Yorkers to free, safe immigration legal help. You can make an appointment to learn your immigration legal options and get immigration application assistance. There are ActionNYC sites in all five boroughs. Appointments are required. Your appointment will be in your language.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States. The work is truly lifesaving because there are nearly 80 countries around the world where it is a crime to be LGBTQ, with consequences up to and including the death penalty. For this reason, Immigration Equality fights to obtain asylum in the United States for LGBTQ and HIV-positive refugees - with a remarkable 99% win rate.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND): KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of children who enter the US immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety and well-being.

Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF): AALDEF is a national organization that protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans by combining litigation, advocacy, education, and community organizing. Issues / focus include immigrant rights, civic participation and voting rights, economic justice for workers, language access to services, educational equity, housing and environmental justice, and the elimination of anti-Asian violence, police misconduct, and human trafficking.

Make the Road New York (MRNY): MRNY builds the power of Latino and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and survival services.

On the Fourth Of July 1976 we drove to San Francisco because rumor on the street was that The Dead were going to play in Golden Gate Park. When we got there a bunch of dazed looking hippies were walking around in the fog. No show.There was no texting back then, just pay phones. We went to the aquarium then went home.

Ooh, I knew that was Yat Kha from across the apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm coelacanth∅:

something screwy going on! the episode star indicates there are 3 other listeners who've starred it but only one shows up.
...and no tracks show that they've been starred. chresti's here -that's not possible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm chresti:

Yeah, same here, the stars keep bouncing off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Handy Haversack:

This might go all the way to the top coela!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm coelacanth∅:

I can also recommend Tanya Tagaq's novel to anyone who likes coming-of-age-stories about huffing butane, losing your virginity to the northern lights, and giving birth to demon twins.
