Keeping Families Together - Community Fundraiser/BBQ to benefit RAICES

  • Donaldson Park - Grove 2 Highland Park, NJ (map)

Get your ticket/make an online donation here  Donate whatever you can!


As of August 9, 2018 559 children who were separated from their parents at the border have not been reunited with their families. This is abhorrent, immoral, and unamerican. And here in New Jersey, so far away from the Mexican border, it's easy to feel helpless.

To try to make a small difference for these families, 3 Highland Park families are sponsoring a community BBQ and fundraiser to benefit RAICES (The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services) which has been providing free and low cost legal services to immigrant children and families in Central and South Texas. 

We'll have food (burgers, hot dogs, veggie burders), drinks, games for the kids, updates from immigrant advocates on what you can do here in New Jersey to make a difference for immigrant families, and opportunities to volunteer.

New Jersey Citizen Action (based in Highland Park) has kindly cosponsored the event and has allowed us to use their ticketing system to collect donations. So while you're donating to New Jersey Citizen Action - 100% of donations will go directly to RAICES. You can also write a check the day of the event, just please let us know you're coming!
