My name is Cristian Sánchez. I’m a supervising attorney at RAICES, and I work to stop deportations of asylum seekers — including those who have faced horrific marginalization and exploitation as members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Despite a global pandemic that caused the world to shut down, this nation’s deportation machine has continued to work at full capacity. Most – if not all – of my clients are in active deportation proceedings, and your support ensures that we can continue to fight for their freedom and protection.

On this International Human Rights Day, can we count on you to make a gift and reaffirm our shared belief that asylum is a human right?
