People’s Market is holding a fundraiser for Al Otro Lado starting now until the end of the semester. We accept all forms of payments for donation including DINING DOLLARS! If you have a lot of leftover dining dollars that will run out in a week and a half, put them to a good cause.
Al Otro Lado is an organization with locations in Tijuana, LA, and San Diego with multiple programs that support migrants such as their Border Rights Project. “Al Otro Lado’s Border Rights Project hosts know-your-rights training and legal orientation workshops in migrant shelters in Tijuana, Mexico, and provides direct legal representation to detained asylum seekers in Southern California. The program documents human rights violations committed against asylum seekers at the port-of-entry and inside immigration detention, and the project’s data has been cited by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Human Rights First.” Other programs include Medical-Legal Partnership, Deportee Program, Litigation Program, and Technical Assistance.
