Indivisible East Bay’s CA-11 Team has worked with Indivisible Kensington (IK) on many important local and national issues over the past two years. Now IK is raising funds for Grannies Respond/Abuelas Responden, an amazing group that fights against the administration’s zero tolerance immigration policies.

In the summer of 2018, hundreds of grannies traveled from all over North America to the U.S.-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, to protest what was happening at the border. Along the way, in various states, they picked up their own caravan of concerned Americans. What Grannies Respond saw at the border motivated them to continue helping immigrants seeking asylum, and they recently started the Overground Railroad Project. Modeled after the Underground Railroad, the Project helps immigrants at bus stops across the country as they make their way to family members and community hosts who will house them while they await court dates.

Indivisible Kensington is having bake sales to benefit the group on Sunday, May 5 from 11 AM to 2 PM, at two locations: the Kensington’s Farmers Market and Young’s Market. IK will also take donations of cash or baked goods. Email indivisiblekensington@gmail.com if you have questions or want to help.
