Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota.
Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM) is a nonprofit agency that provides immigration legal assistance to low-income immigrants and refugees in Minnesota. For over 25 years ILCM has been working in service and support of Minnesota’s immigrant and refugee communities. Since its beginning, ILCM has assisted more than tens of thousands of immigrants to secure legal status in the United States, and to overcome the challenges of obtaining work authorization and citizenship. Their services help break down barriers and make meaningful improvements to immigrant families’ lives, allowing them a safe and sustainable future in Minnesota.
As regulations and opportunities are constantly shifting and as immigration and/or refugee status becomes increasingly politically weaponized, let us not forget that every case number is a human being connected to our global family: ours is a shared history AND a shared future. ILCM is working with the power of the law to fulfill the aspirational promise of America: give us your masses, yearning to breathe free.
