Our neighbors live each day  not knowing if or when their family might be torn apart. Community for All is a campaign that funds the development of a grassroots organization that: 1) engages local voices to identify needs and organize capacity; 2) leverages the expertise of local agencies to provide legal aid; and 3) strengthens human and social services.

We need $6,000 to fund a grassroots organizer dedicated to the immigrant community of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown.

Community for All is a fundraising campaign working with WESPAC and Community Voices Heard, two well established non-profit organizations dedicated to social justice in Westchester County. For more information about how to donate please visit our website at Donations are tax deductible.
