In light of everything that we've witnessed in the past few months at the border, we've decided to focus efforts back to immigrant rights and organizations that provide legal services and education to those in danger. Locally, there's no better group to partner with than our friends at The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. Our very first cause and donation was made to CHIRLA in 2016 and we are so happy to be fighting alongside them again for Summer 2018 and even into our Fall season.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) was founded in 1986. CHIRLA is a California leader with national impact made of diverse immigrant families and individuals who act as agents of social change to achieve a world with freedom of mobility, full human rights, and true participatory democracy. CHIRLA’s mission is to achieve a just society fully inclusive of immigrants. CHIRLA organizes and serves individuals, institutions and coalitions to build power, transform public opinion, and change policies to achieve full human, civil and labor rights. Guided by the power, love, and vision of our community, CHIRLA embraces and drives progressive social change. CHIRLA was formed in response to the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 which made hiring undocumented workers illegal, thus creating a situation ripe for worker exploitation and abuse which has only increased since that time.
