July

 

Organization: Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition

Website: http://hispanicfederation.org/getthejobdone/

Mission: to “provide life-changing support – legal representation, advocacy and social services – to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers throughout the United States.” (quote found HERE)

This month’s print: you can find it in the Shop by clicking here or by clicking on the “Shop” tab in the navigation menu. 30% of the proceeds from this print will go straight to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. They are a coalition made up of twelve different non-profit organizations (listed below), and your money will help them in their mission to “provide life-changing support – legal representation, advocacy and social services – to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers throughout the United States.”

You can also support them by:

  • Donating directly to one (or more) of the individual organizations
  • Taking the time to visit each website and learn more about the different organizations and how you can get involved
  • Donating to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Prizeo Contest now through the end of July

Members of the Coalition:

And remember…

  • One of my goals this year is to listen to AND hear other people’s POVs, so if you have ideas or reference pictures for images I can use in my artwork or base the artwork off of, email them to me at elizabeth@byelizabethhope.com with the subject line: Art for Hope. If I use your image(s), you will be credited in the blog post for the month and in the note I will be sending out with each print. Also, if your image has a story behind it or personal connection to you, I will also feature your story in the blog (after receiving your permission)
  • I welcome/encourage suggestions for the other causes we will be supporting throughout the rest of the year – I’d love to hear your feedback and know what matters to you! Here is a quick survey you can take if you’d like to submit suggestions 🙂 This survey can be taken at any time over the next 6 months
  • Maybe you know other people who would be interested in the Rebel Hope Series as a whole or in some of the specific causes we will be supporting – please share this post with them! You can share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest – anywhere and everywhere! The more people who know about this project, the more funds we can raise for all of the wonderful organizations that will be represented in the coming months 🙂
