Why We're Here
Artists for Asylum is a fundraiser and art exhibition dedicated to empowering artists and communities to take a stand against the inhumane treatment of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers at our southern border. It will coincide with the Andersonville Arts Week and will take place September 19th - 21st, 2019.
For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
We wanted to work with the ACLU because of their long standing reputation as defenders of our liberties. The work they’re doing is absolutely vital to the American way of life—we’re living in a time where our constitutional freedoms can’t be counted on, so, we need an organization that fights for adherence to our laws and constitution in an unbiased way.

We’re working with Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights because all children deserve to be protected. Their advocates, social workers, and volunteers advocate for a child’s best interests to be considered in the decision making process.
