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.
Immigrants in Rockland have been very hard hit by Covid-19 so we quickly developed a food program to support about 200 of these food-insecure families. Unfortunately, our source of food is no longer able to provide us with anything. Therefore we greatly need financial contributions to continue to provide food relief. We also need volunteers to solicit food donations from markets and do food drives in their networks. Please be in touch if you can help: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
