Since entering sanctuary, Hilda has missed 2 school years of Ivan's soccer games and meet-the-teacher nights, and she has been forced to be an absent mother because of her deportation order. Help change this for Ivan and Hilda.

We banded together w/dozens of orgs as the crackdown on sanctuary cities has swept the nation. We helped birth Austin as part of the nation's 'freedom cities.' It's the latest mark of progress to fight anti-sanctuary policies.
