KIND (Kids in Need of Defense), a national network of pro bono attorneys, works to protect immigrant children who arrive alone in the U.S. Most NJ KIND children are no longer in detention centers, but living with families while they await court hearings to determine their eventual legal status and home.
KIND’s office in Roseland, NJ, is seeking donations and children’s school supplies for the new school year.
If you want to learn more about how you can support this effort, please contact Clara Haignere (email address below), member of UULMNJ’s Immigration Reform Task Force and liaison to KIND. You can also check out the UULMNJ Immigration Reform website page: uulmnj.org/immigration-reform-
Needed school supplies: Backpacks, #2 pencils, composition notebooks, crayon pkgs, glue sticks, pocket folders, rulers, erasers, pencil cases, 3 subject- notebooks, combination locks, staplers, Scott tapes, post-its.
Donations of any amount are also welcomed.
