about your donations, where & how they are used
My name is Lisa Maria Rhodes, the founder and Executive Director of ALAS. Today there is a student in jail instead of school, only because their family is too poor to afford bail. Today there is a student missing school to go to court, where they will lose their case and get a deportation order only because there is no public defender in immigration court and they can’t afford an attorney.
Donations made by ordinary people like you, no matter how big or small, help ALAS fulfill our mission.
1) Train educators to support immigrant and court impacted youth.
2) Connect undocumented students to pro-bono and low bono immigration attorneys.
3) Write letters to judges so students can be in school instead of in jail pre-trial.
