IT’S MY BIRTHDAY: Donate to @raicestexas!

We are already almost 20% of the way to our goal, and the fund raiser officially starts today! Go donate to RAICES while I’m on my way to Indianapolis! Remember, in addition to any donations from my readers, here is how this will work:

  • I will donate the entire proceeds of every book I sell at InConJunction this weekend, from July 5-7. Every last dime. 
  • Through midnight on the 12th, I will donate my entire share of any books I sell on Amazon. 
  • You are obviously welcome to do direct cash donations through the donation link. That said: anyone who donates more than $25 through the link should email me and let me know, because I will send you a signed book of your choice, depending on my stock levels after the con is over.  Click will be eligible for this, so if you want a print copy and don’t want to use Patreon, this is a way to get a copy.
  • If you happen to decide to review one of my books this week, email me.

I’ll be making my next donation on Monday or Tuesday depending on how many credit card sales I make this weekend and how long all that takes to clear. If you were thinking about participating, today’s the day. Donate!

RAICES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.

Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. With offices in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. As an organization that combines expertise developed from the daily practice of immigration law with a deep commitment to advocacy, RAICES is unique among immigration organizations. A diverse staff of 130 attorneys, legal assistants, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state. In 2017, RAICES staff closed 51,000 cases at no cost to the client. Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve every day as our attorneys and legal assistants provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.
