Supporting Migrant Families: What You Can Do

Migrants across the country are organizing in the face of neglectful conditions at the border and increasing attacks by ICE and the Trump administration.

There are ways to support the work in Athens, too. Dignidad Inmigrante en Athens (DIA) is organizing workshops, canvassing days, and rapid response networks.

Here’s how you can help:

Volunteer for the Upcoming Workshop

DIA is hosting a training for asylum-seekers in Greensboro, GA on July 6 from 11:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M. that is designed to:

  1. Provide information about the asylum process for those who have recently arrived
  2. Connect folks to resources, organizations, and to each other
  3. Prepare people for how to respond if an ICE raid occurs  
  4. Absorb folks into the migrant-led movement 

DIA is looking for:

  • At least two drivers who can transport the Athens DIA folks to Greensboro & back 
  • Two childcare volunteers who can engage with kids while their parents receive the training 
  • Funding for food
  • Any extra drivers who might be able to save attendees money by driving them home
  • English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translators

Canvass in July

Every Saturday in July, DIA will be canvassing to mobilize Latinx people around the campaign to end arrests for driving without a license and also connect folks to the immigrant rights movement in Athens. 

DIA is looking for: 

  • Canvassing volunteers! **Bilingual people especially needed.**
