Shelter Refugees and Immigrants

In terms of the things that are happening in the world right now, perhaps no one needs sheltering more than the refugees of the humanitarian crises happening in Syria and so many other places.  Here are some links to people and resources that are working to help refugees:

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is on the front lines helping refugees, and their site provides valuable information as well as the opportunity to contribute.

The National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild is hard at work protecting the rights of immigrants, and has links for ways to get involved.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is hard at work defending the civil rights of Muslims.  Learn more about what they do and support their mission here.

Families for Freedom helps to protect immigrant families facing deportation or detention.
