"I just donated to the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), an organization that provides life-changing legal services for immigrants and people seeking asylum, and advocates for more humane U.S. immigration policies. This work is so important to keep families in our communities together and protect those seeking safety at our borders. I believe we need to support our immigrant neighbors, free people unjustly locked up in immigration jail, and welcome people seeking asylum. If you're interested in supporting this cause with me, you can make a donation here: https://immigrantjustice.org/donate"
