We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, charities, families, businesses, community centers and nonprofits around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Arkansas United Community Coalition (AUCC, Arkansas Unidos) will be participating for the first time in #GivingTuesday in an effort to raise $10,000 for the 10,000 Arkansas immigrant families that we hope to serve in 2015 with their Deferred Action and citizenship applications. Join our current donors by supporting our timely informational forums, free legal assistance workshops (especially in the underserved communities of rural Arkansas), a service-organizing pipeline to bring new immigrant and ally families into the movement, and training the next generation of Change Agents (Agentes de Cambio). Please check our Facebook page daily for testimonials from our immigrant organizers and allies about what this historic moment and the immigrant movement in Arkansas means to them. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing to be a Giving Tuesday captain, and also encourage your networks to pay it forward by investing in inclusion, integration and empowerment for ALL Arkansans and donate to AUCC on #GivingTuesdayAR.
