The Fronterizo Fianza Fund helps post immigration bonds and also supports still-detained people through small deposits to commissary and telephone accounts or miscellaneous expenses upon release. 100% of your donation directly benefits detained individuals and their families. The Fianza Fund is administered by a grassroots collective based in El Paso, Texas (note: we do not yet have 501(c)(3) status-though we are working on it!). Contact us if you have questions!
DONATIONS THROUGH PAYPAL:
Bank-to-bank transfers are free--go to PayPal.com and use email address DMSCelpaso@gmail.com. You can also donate with a card (but fees are lower through DonorBox ☜☜)
Free all queer detainees and #enddetention!
The Fianza Fund remains committed to working with queer people in ICE detention around our region until all are free. Your donations have helped numerous women in Cibola County's 'trans pod' and LGBTQ individuals in El Paso and Otero County free themselves.
It was a special honor to bond out four young gay men in August and September (right), who are now living in Las Cruces, New Mexico and continuing to fight for their detained compañerxs.
I WANT TO HAVE A GREATER IMPACT-WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Organize a fundraising event!
Organize a movie night, a silent auction, or another fun event to raise money for the Fianza Fund! These events are also a great way to build community and raise awareness about the detention system--and you don't even have to be near us! Contact us to discuss ideas!
Join the DMSC and volunteer!
If you're in West Texas/New Mexico/Cd. Juárez, you can help us engage with impacted families, raise funds, and even go to post bonds! We also have ways you can support people still detained through visits, translation, and documentation!
