Saturday, July 27, 2019 and Sunday, July 28, 2019 Nationwide
Hosted by Lawyer Moms Foundation
Take a stand for children in detention centers and for family reunification! On Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th, kids and families across the nation will host lemonade stands to raise awareness of the ongoing separation of migrant children from their families and the current plight of children in detention centers across the country.
Will you help migrant children by hosting a lemonade stand on July 27 or July 28? REGISTER YOUR STAND HERE: https://www.lawyermomsfoundation.org/register-your-stand
All proceeds from the lemonade stands will be donated to 2 incredible organizations: the Rio Grande Valley Rapid Response and KIND (Kids in Need of Defense). The mission of Rio Grande Valley Rapid Response is to welcome, orient, feed, clothe, and otherwise serve the immigrants and refugees being released en masse in the Rio Grande Valley. KIND has a robust national network of pro bono attorneys who have represented unaccompanied children in their search for safety, and provides legal services and social services for released migrant children.
Last year's Kids Take a Stand was a smashing success, with lemonade stands in over 91 cities and 38 states. Over $40,000 was raised, with donations benefiting Project Corazon, a national coalition of lawyers providing legal assistance for the safe reunification of families. This year we want lemonade stands in every single state and we need your help to meet that goal. We have a helpful toolkit to help you plan your stand, but we need you to REGISTER YOUR STAND today! https://www.lawyermomsfoundation.org/register-your-stand
If you can't host a stand or visit one, please consider hosting your own virtual lemonade stand on FB or donating here: www.lawyermomsfoundation.org/donate
Thank you for taking a stand!
