Immigrant and refugee children and families across Washington State – both newcomers and longtime residents – are afraid and are experiencing the direct impact of new federal immigration policies. This has created a domino effect as nonprofits are facing skyrocketing calls for assistance and services. With an expansion of detention, deportation, and priorities for enforcement, limits on refugee admissions, attempts to create a travel ban, and more, the stakes have never been higher for Washington State communities. Organizations throughout the state have been working on rapid responses with a diverse range of stakeholders in the face of critical needs in the community. Philanthropy is at a critical juncture as it considers the impact on communities it supports and funding strategies moving forward.
