family reunification OF DETAINED IMMIGRANTS
HELLO VUELO IS CURRENTLY FUNDRAISING FOR TRAVEL EXPENSES RELATED TO THE REUNIFICATION OF IMMIGRANTS BEING IN U.S. DETENTION CENTERS WITH FAMILY MEMBERS, LOVED ONES, AND SPONSORS.
We are reaching out to organizations on the ground providing support to immigrant detainees, such as Make the Road NY, National Bail Fund Network, and the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project, to fund flights and bus tickets to reunite released detainees with family/friends/sponsors in the US.
Thousands and thousands of immigrants - including minors - are being held in detention centers across the country - trapped in a system that is difficult even for professional advocates to navigate. Legal staff, community organizations & volunteers are working hard to reunite immigrants with their families.
For many family members & family friends, the cost of travel when someone is released from detention is expensive & difficult to pay for on short notice. Hello Vuelo is partnering with legal & community organizations on the ground, such as Make the Road New York, to fund travel expenses for released immigrants, sponsors family members, and family friends with the goal of family reunification.
ABOUT US: Hello Vuelo is a volunteer run non-profit organization - all donations go directly towards trips to reunite low income families. We are a small group of people who believe low wages should not keep families apart and wanted to do something about it. Hello Vuelo collaborates with amazing partner groups organizing low income communities for fair economic and immigration policies such as Make the Road NY, African Services Committee, UnLocal, Chinese Progressive Association, and more.
