As we observe World Refugee Day, we recognize the strength and resilience of our refugee community members who still strive for a better life.
Today, we'd like to share the good news of Mr. Sok Krouch, who received a governor's pardon and is now able to continue with his life without the fear of being separated from his family, community, and dignity.
Since the last round of I.C.E raids in Washington State, a team of community members, advocates, and lawyers were able to help reunite four of our community members with their families after being detained for months at the Northwest Detention Center.
Although we celebrate these impactful victories, our thoughts are with the 50+ Cambodian American community members who are scheduled to be deported in early July. After this round of deportations, we are preparing for another series of I.C.E Raids nationwide.
If you or someone you know has an order of removal, please get in touch for assistance immediately. It is important community members look into their options before being detained.
To be heard, we must continue to make noise and we are louder and stronger together as a community.
