Helping Families Affected by the Immigration Raids in Worthington

These are some ways you can help the families and children affected by the abusive ICE raids in Worthington.

Donate Food, Clothes, Toys
Thanks to Latino Communications Network, this Friday and Saturday from 8am--8pm, donations will be collected at the La Invasora station in Plaza Verde, 2nd floor, located on the corner of Lake St. and Bloomington Avenue. Families have expressed the need for basic foods such as tortillas, beans, rice, cereal, crackers, maseca, baby formula and juice. Due to the holiday season right around the corner, people would like to see toys and children's clothes donated as well. Please drop off your donation at the Plaza Verde building. All donations will be transported to Worthington on Sunday, thanks to the support of Latino Communications Network. Once the donations arrive in Worthington, they will be given to the Distribution Committee who will make sure that all the donations get evenly handed out to the various locations/organizations that are actively connecting with families and children who have been affected by the issue.

Donate Money
Monetary contributions are being accepted by Darlene Maklin, United Way/Chamber of Commerce in Worthington. Please call Darlene at 507-372-2919 to let her know how much you'd like to contribute. Money is needed to help families pay rent and heating bills due to the economic hit some of these families are enduring because of the immigration raids.

Volunteers
People are needed in Worthington to help translate (Spanish-English) in various settings, from helping the media to connect with human stories of this issue to helping lawyers fill out intake forms. People are needed to help the union with food distribution logistics and database building, increasing capacity to connect with families, and to help provide general support for local happenings.

Media
You can help to take a stance against immigration raids by writing letters to the editor (the Star Tribune, Pioneer Press and your local newspaper) to point out the inhumane and unjust circumstances regarding the raids. These raids do nothing to help communities engage with the root causes of immigration. Raids are unacceptable. They devastate communities, heartlessly divide families, and negatively affect all people, not just Latinos. Try to reach out to members of editorial boards in any newspaper to see if they will publish an editorial taking a stance against these oppressive raids. Participate in web-based conversations to help educate the broader public about why you believe immigration raids are not the answer. We suggest logging on to:

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at www.samsonblinded.org/blog



Best wishes,

Eugene Gershin
