Weekly Update 7.08.19

"It's not like Mexicans have an illegal immigration organ in their body and at 14 (yrs old it) kicks off a hormone and shows them how to come to the United States illegally. It's a question of desperation for a vast majority of immigrants."
Luis Alberto Urrea (b.1955)
Mexican-American novelist and essayist

     We hope you and your loved ones had a safe and restful Independence Day, WeCAN Friends. As you know, the conditions at our Southern border have not improved; we would like to share a list of actionable items we can do here, in VT, to help those who are in turmoil. If you have additions that you'd like to add please email your Friendly WeCAN Admins at admin@wecantogether.net and we will add your suggestions in a future Weekly Email Update. 

1) Email/contact/visit your Representatives: 
     a) Go to https://www.house.gov/representatives and enter your ZIP code where it says “Find Your Representative” on the upper righthand side of the page.
     b) Go to https://www.senate.gov and use the “Find Your Senators” pull-down menu in the upper left corner of the page.
     c) These websites are also helpful and straightforward: https://www.callmycongress.com; https://www.contactingcongress.org; https://whoismyrepresentative.com; and https://5calls.org.
     d) If you are unable to use the internet, you can call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected with your senator or congressperson.
Here is a script you can use:

“My name is (SAY YOUR NAME) and I’m a constituent in (SAY THE NAME OF YOUR TOWN OR CITY). I’ve read about the conditions migrant children are facing at Border Patrol camps along the border. This is unacceptable. I ask that you work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to swiftly and properly fund these facilities and set standards of care that can be monitored and enforced. No child should suffer at the hands of our country. Do your job and protect these children.”

2) Donate your time or funds to these vetted organizations:
     a)The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) is a Texas nonprofit that helps immigrant children, migrant families and refugees. The group has more than 100 attorneys, legal assistants and support staff.
     b)The American Civil Liberties Union has been fighting the administration’s family separation policies and advocating for immigrants since separations began.
     c)Immigrant Families Together is an all-volunteer group that helps asylum seekers with bonds, works to reunite migrant parents with their children and helps families get established once they’ve been released.
     d)Kids In Need of Defense provides legal services to children and “reintegration support for children returning alone from the U.S. to their home countries.”
     e)The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonprofit that defends immigrants' rights. The organization is addressing ICE and border patrol abuse, immigration policies, and more, along with educating the nation on how to uphold the Constitution. You can donate to help the ACLU's efforts here.
     f)Many more organizations can be found in these comprehensive lists: https://www.texastribune.org/2018/06/18/heres-list-organizations-are-mobilizing-help-separated-immigrant-child/https://www.yesmagazine.org/peace-justice/immigrant-children-border-crisis-how-to-help-20190625.

3) Other ways to get involved: Donating money to organizations is a simple and impactful way to make a difference, but if you're looking to do more, here are some other steps you can take. 
     a)
Protest and raise awareness. Protest current immigration policies and government actions at the border by attending or hosting events. Keep raising awareness by sharing information and updates with others and taking part in the online conversation. If you are comfortable, ask your friends and neighbors if they need ideas or links to get involved or donate. 
     b)
Write Opinion Editorials for Local Media Outlets: Click here for a template op-ed (faith based, but can be secular with a few tweaks). Publishing opinion editorials (op-eds) around Fourth of July is a great way to get the attention of your Members of Congress. But first, you need to write a piece that tells your story – not just the facts:

  • Keep it relevantUse a shared holiday or custom as your hook to draw the reader’s attention. Think of personal, meaningful stories of families and children you know.
  • Keep it short: Newspapers are most likely to publish letters to the editor that are short and make one succinct point (that is supported with facts or quotes from validators!). Check the newspaper you’re submitting to for a word limit. If you can’t find a limit, keep it to 150 words or fewer for LTEs or 750 words or fewer for op-eds.
  • Write from your own voice: Your piece is more likely to be published if it comes from your voice. Don’t be afraid to tell your and your family’s story and to appeal to the audience from the heart as well as the head.
  • Submit it to the newspaper: Submit the letter directly to the newspaper (most newspapers have an online submissions page) and follow up by phone or email if you don’t get a response within a week or two. Put the letter in the body of the email to make it easy for the editorial staff to read. As you submit your letter, don’t miss an opportunity to build a relationship with staff.

HAPPENING THIS WEEK, MONDAY, JULY 8th, 2019-SUNDAY, JULY 14th, 2019

Birddogging 101
hosted by Rights & Democracy NH and Rights & Democracy VT
Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 at the Brattleboro Food Coop (2 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT, 05301) in the Community Room. 6pm-8pm. Please use the 7 Canal Street entrance. Do not use the Coop main entrance. This is a free event hosted by Rights & Democracy NH and VT. Food and drink will be provided, so come a little early for refreshments and good conversation.
Birddogging 101 is a participatory and interactive training that will give you the skills and confidence to talk to presidential candidates and elected officials about the issues facing our communities.
What is birddogging? It simply means seeking out elected officials and candidates and pushing them for clear answers on important questions. When we do this we can influence their positions as well as the public's perception.
We’ve got so many opportunities to get up close and personal with 2020 candidates in New Hampshire this year, and birddogging is a fun and high-profile way to take advantage of that. It also helps advance our campaigns for social, economic and political justice. Step out and use your voice!

This is a great way for us here in Southern Vermont to help the good folks of NH connect with the campaign without having to travel, and phone-banking is so much more fun when you do it with others in a supportive atmosphere!
Don't worry about making dinner ahead--we'll have some food and beverages on hand. Feel free to come a little early and have something to eat before we get started making calls.
Bring a laptop AND your cellphone (you will need both!), but we will have a few extras on hand for folks who don't have them.

Lights for Liberty, A Vigil to End Human Detention Centers: Putney, VT
hosted by the Putney Huddle in support of the Community Asylum Seekers Project
Friday, July 12th, 2019 on the Putney Tavern Green (Corner of Kimball Street and Main Street, Putney, VT). 8:30pm-9:30pm. Please do not park in the Tavern Parking Lot. The Gleanery will be open and needs their parking. Thank you! If you can supply candles please contact The Putney Huddle on Facebook to donate.
We will gather at the corner of Kimball Street and Main Street to educate, support the Community Asylum Seekers Project, send postcards to those that hold power and stand in solidarity with the families facing inhumane conditions and treatment. We will hear from Steve Crofter of the Community Asylum Seekers Project, and Simha Ravven, local forensic psychologist who is using her skill to help build cases for asylum seekers.
You will be able to donate directly, learn about future actions and take part in directed postcard action all while adding your voice to an international collective demanding human dignity first.

From Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps will bring thousands of Americans to detention camps across the country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.
El Paso, Texas, where migrants are being housed in outdoor conditions under a bridge with no running water for months at a time, is the anticipated site of the main Lights for Liberty vigil. Legislators, activists, organizers, and members of impacted communities are expected to speak. 
Other key events are planned in Homestead, FL, at a migrant child detention facility that has caused mass abuse and neglect; in San Diego, near the point of entry site from Tijuana; in New York City, at Foley Square, where hundreds of migrants are processed through detention a day; and in Washington, DC, in front of the Capitol building, to demand action from Congress to end human detention and impeach the President.
Across this country, we have witnessed acts against people fleeing persecution many of us thought we would never see in modern times.
At Trump’s human detention camps, teen mothers and babies are held outdoors in “dog pounds.” We have witnessed the sick and elderly confined to “icebox” rooms for weeks at a time. Unbelievably, children as young as 4 months are taken from their parents, medicine is confiscated, and medical care withheld, and LGBTQ and disabled individuals are held in solitary confinement. 
“The Trump administration’s immigration policies and detention camps meet the United Nations’ definition of genocide and crimes against humanity,” said Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin, lawyer, activist and organizer. “Congress is refusing to stop the president and his policies. We cannot allow these atrocities to be perpetrated in our name.”
Perhaps most terrifying, refugees are beginning to be moved onto military grounds, where there will be a lack of oversight from the media, lawyers, and human rights monitors. Many of us thought we would never see anything like this in modern times.
“Now is the time for every person to stand up and say, ‘We will not accept this!’ No more hesitating. No more denial. No more fear. We need to be bold, and loud, and unrelenting. That’s the only way we can stop this,” said Kristin Mink, activist and organizer.
There are many locations partaking throughout Vermont and the rest of the nation...

Public Film Screening: "Within the Eye of the Storm”
hosted by Jerusalem Peacebuilders and the Windham World Affairs Council 
Thursday, July 25th, 2019 at 118 Gallery (118 Elliot Street, Brattleboro, VT, 05301). 5:30pm-8pm.
Please join us for a special program focusing on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Jerusalem Peacebuilders will present the powerful Israeli film, “Within the Eye of the Storm,” followed by small group discussions led by pairs of Israelis and Palestinians from the Jerusalem Peacebuilders’ Vermont Leadership Institute. This is a rare opportunity to meet Israeli and Palestinian peacebuilders and to learn more about one of the most challenging conflicts of our time.  
“Within the Eye of the Storm” is the story of Bassam and Rami, a Palestinian and an Israeli who were once dedicated fighters willing to kill and be killed by one another for their nations. When faced with the tragic loss of their daughters in the conflict, they chose to do the unexpected, and, instead of seeking revenge, they turned from enemies into brothers.
Jerusalem Peacebuilders’ Vermont Leadership Institute brings together American, Israeli, and Palestinian young adults with the focus of creating a new generation of Peacebuilders and leaders. The program challenges participants to consider different perspectives around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In addition, it encourages participants to deepen their understanding of faith traditions and develop strategies for taking action to promote peace.
