Welcome to Proyecto Faro’s site! Amidst escalating xenophobia and anti-immigrant policies, Proyecto Faro supports undocumented community members and families impacted by detention and deportation. We have created opportunities for immigrants to empower ourselves and each other and for the larger community to act in solidarity.
During this scary pandemic, immigrants are especially vulnerable. Please help us get what’s needed to food-insecure immigrants, including baby food, diapers, and personal hygiene items.
We set up a Rapid Response Hotline: (845) 262-9586 to report ICE arrests-in-progress, and will mobilize volunteers to try to prevent, offer witness, and protect targeted immigrants during ICE detentions.
Proyecto Faro has hosted vigils, Know Your Rights events, and legal trainings. We built and run a monthly legal clinic and provide assistance to families affected by the detention or deportation of a loved one.
With the purpose of cutting through the feelings of isolation and fear many immigrants experience, we’ve developed an accompaniment program, providing solidarity, friendship, and transportation for legal consultations, court appearances, and visits to family members at detention facilities.
Building alliances throughout the county, we encourage compassionate action, a focus on immigrant leadership, and participation in organizing toward community power. We hope you will join us!
