I was heartbroken when I heard about the families being separated at the border. I wanted to find something active that I could do to help immigrant families, and was overjoyed to learn about HRI and their mission right here in my backyard.
When I first came in and met with everyone in person and saw the slogan “Immigrant Rights Are Human Rights” I knew I found the right people and cause to give my time to.
There is a wonderful community of people right here in Dallas that care just as much as I do and are enormously talented and dedicated to helping those in need. After being so discouraged by the news and feeling hopeless, this is exactly what I needed to boost my hope for this country and humanity.
You won’t find a kinder and more dedicated staff than the folks at HRI. There is a ton of heart at their core and I am proud to have the opportunity to work with them.
