Already called your senator and donated to RAICES? That is AWESOME! Still can't sleep at night knowing that our country is continuing its horrible history of debasing people of color? Here are a few more actions.
I like to focus on the trio of CALL/DONATE/SHOW UP. Not everyone can do all, but if you can, please do!
Here you go:
Call your governor and ask them to withdraw your state's National Guard troops from the border.
UPDATE: CA's National Guard is not involved with this. (https://www.sacbee.com/…/capitol-alert/article213459539.html)
Baby2Baby and Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), a non-profit that provides low-income children, ages 0-12 years, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves, set up a baby registry at Target to send bundles of essentials like diapers, wipes, shampoo and soap directly to immigrant children.

3) SHOW UP:
Attend one of the many protest happening near you this June 30th (or different date--check what is near you) they are going to be everywhere! Make your signs and childcare arrangements if you have to have attend because the numbers matter to get the press covering it everywhere.
MoveOn.org has a great list of them locally https://act.moveon.org/…/families-belong-together_att…/20020
Have any other ideas? Please add them to this post and LET'S GET CRACKING, FOLKS!
