Donation Box in the Max for Asylum-Seekers at the Border
November 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - November 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
This year Active Minds is focusing on mental health as the wide scale public health issue it is. Right now in the world there are people fleeing their homes in search of safety for themselves and their children. This journey often will harshly affect a person’s physical and mental health. For the month of October, every week Active Minds will release some information regarding the situation currently on the border, culminating in a donation drive.
Here’s how you can help:
Active Minds and Alpha Phi Omega have partnered to host a donation drive for asylum-seekers at the border. By donating menstrual products (tampons and pads) during our campus wide supply drive, you’ll be playing a part in the effort to restore some humanity in the individuals asking for asylum in this country. In addition to a physical drive, we will have a box in the Max during the two weeks of collection to make it super easy to donate. Collected materials will be shipped to Brownsville, TX to be distributed to asylum seekers by the Angry Tias and Abuela, a local group of activist located on the Texan-Mexican border.
Hosted by: Active Minds at Emerson College, Alpha Phi Omega
