Thanks to the generosity of donors, we have deployed $50,000 from our Immigrant Rights Fund to address the ongoing national emergency of immigrant families separated and detained at the U.S.-Mexico border.

As this summer’s Program intern, I have had the opportunity to read applications from organizations seeking funding through our grant programs, as well as reports from grantees on their progress over the past year. Getting to know these organizations has deepened my understanding of the needs of Brooklyn community members. One of my favorite projects has been mapping the neighborhoods and communities our Immigrant Rights Fund (IRF) grantees serve.
