Donating $5 (or more) may not seem like much, but collectively we can lend a helping hand to this important organization by simply giving the spare cash in our pockets, and enjoying a yoga class tought by Amelia Rustaey!
Casa Mariposa is a local organization dedicated to helping migrants and refugees in the Southern Arizona borderlands. They work closely with Mariposas Sin Fronteras, a local organization of queer and trans individuals who have been affected by the immigration detention system. Together they have helped thousands of refugees, migrant, and LGBTQIJ+ individuals who have recently been released from immigration detention. They provide essential support for these individuals in securing their release, providing housing upon release, and a safe space for a community to grow.
In recent months Mariposa Sin Fronteras has worked to obtain a permanent residence for both Casa Mariposa and Mariposa Sin Fronteras to continue their work. We enthusiastically support their work and ask you to come out December 2nd and support your Tucson organization to help ensure their work!
