In partnership with California philanthropy, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) today announced the launch of the California Dignity for Families Fund, seeking to raise $20 million to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of migrants at the southern California border, ensure due process for asylum seekers, support their integration into receiving communities, and restore dignity to the asylum process.
Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) is looking for a DACAmented intern to join our team and develop exposure to the workplace, provide experience in a philanthropic nonprofit organization, deepen knowledge of issues related to immigration, and help build skills for future employment.
