Help drive refugees to medical appointments

Eager to support refugees in the wake of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's unconstitutional executive order? The Interfaith Refugee and Immigration Service desperately needs LA drivers with flexible schedules to transport refugees to critical medical, legal, and financial appointments. If you're interested in helping, please email Liz Kurtz at [email protected] and she'll set you up to help drive. Driving does not require any consistent commitment, and you can do it whenever it fits your schedule.
