If you would like to contribute financially to the efforts of AVID in the Chihuahuan Desert, please consider making a donation to Fronterizx Fianza which is a bond and commissary fund established by our colleagues the Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee (DMSC). The Fronterizx Fianza fund pays bonds to release people from detention and, while people are detained, helps cover basic costs like stamps and phone calls to attorneys or family members. Thank you for your generous contribution.
