Before you go: we ask that you please consider donating whatever you can afford to Ayuda, an organization that "provides legal, social, and language services to help vulnerable immigrants in our neighborhoods access justice and transform their lives." So to Speak views the work that Ayuda is doing as vital to our greater Washington D.C. community as well as vital to the greater discussion of how to support, protect, and welcome immigrants in the United States of America. We appreciate whatever support you can show to this wonderful organization. You can donate online or by mail. Learn more here: https://ayuda.com/get-involved/ways-to-donate/
