Standing With Immigrants: Champions of Change

May 6, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

With the support of many, Ayuda has helped more than 150,000 immigrants access justice, stop abuses, find safety, heal from trauma, and overcome language isolation. Since 1973, Ayuda has been a pioneer in providing holistic, culturally and linguistically appropriate legal, social, language access to meet the emerging needs of immigrants in D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

This year, in a time of deep division and isolation, Ayuda has stepped up in news ways to meet the increased needs of our immigrant neighbors. Because of the support of our donors, we have been able to sustain and expand our critical services during the pandemic, and our doors have remained open.

Ayuda’s clients may have limited incomes and language skills, but they have an unyielding desire to do better for themselves and their families, to share their heritage with joy and pride, and to give of themselves as members of our communities.

This is what Standing with Immigrants is all about – supporting our immigrant neighbors’ unwavering strength and resilience, and honor those who have contributed to upholding our mission.

We will always be there for immigrants, and ask you to join us on May 6, 2021 as we honor those who have contributed greatly to the communities we serve, and help to welcome new supporters to our mission.

The funds raised through the generosity of our supporters will enable Ayuda to sustain and expand its vital legal, social and language access services, and will directly impact the lives of low-income immigrants in D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

Ayuda's Response to Busing of Migrants

Since April 2022, Ayuda has been working to help coordinate the humanitarian response as the governors of Texas and Arizona continue to send thousands of migrants on buses to Washington, D.C.

We are providing culturally and linguistically specific legal, social and language access services to newly arriving migrants. These services include case management and intake support, interpretation, as well as the provision of food, clothing, hygiene kits, prepaid cell phones, medical supplies, and paid shelter.

Our legal team is providing individualized legal orientations for migrants explaining the immigration system and helping them be aware of their rights and responsibilities.  

“Immigrants are first and foremost, human beings. They deserve respect and compassion, and Ayuda will continue to do what we do best – provide holistic support to those in need in our communities.” - Paula Fitzgerald, Executive Director
