Help Sustain Diverse and Welcoming Communities

Did you know it costs…

  • $495 every year to renew a temporary work authorization
  • $725 for legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship
  • $1225 to apply for a “green card” and obtain legal permanent residence

If our neighbors cannot afford to renew their work permits, the risk of deportation is real.  Obtaining a green card and attaining citizenship provide a real measure of security in these uncertain times.

You can help by hosting a Welcome to the Table party for your friends and family and raise money to subsidize these fees.  Everything you need to know is in the Welcome to the Table Toolkit: https://www.getorganizedbk.org/welcome-to-the-table-toolkit

Our partners are Center for Family Life and Atlas DIY, community based organizations in Sunset Park.  If you cannot host a party, you can support their work directly on the Welcome to the Table Fundraising site: https://www.crowdrise.com/welcometothetable
