Things That Matter

This Special Shirt Is Helping RAICES And Kids Who Are Locked Up In Migrant Detention Centers

As the migrant crisis rages on and people are being forced into cages, forced to sleep on cold floors, forced into overcrowded detention centers, many of us wonder what can we do to help.

We are partnering with RAICES and donating 100 percent of the proceeds from this shirt to help this nonprofit continue their fight to free these children from cages and offer legal advice to all migrants seeking asylum in the US.⁠

We’ve all seen the crisis at the border and the inhumane treatment of these migrant children. Show your support for migrant rights — and human rights — by rocking your own “Close The Camps” tee. Because NO ONE BELONGS IN A CAGE.⁠

These are the shirts you can buy to help RAICES and children locked up in migrant detention centers.

To everyone that wants to help migrants during this difficult and unjust time, here is what you can do…buy a shirt from Mitú and 100% of the proceeds will go to RAICES – an organization working hard to help migrants.

Click here to purchase our #CloseTheCamps tee and support the cause.

RAICES does amazing work to help the migrant community – especially children who have been separated from their families.

These are just some of the crucial legal services that RAICES provides to immigrants:

  • Asylum
  • Relative Petitions
  • Adjustment of Status
  • Employment Authorization
  • Cancellation of Removal
  • Naturalization
  • Citizenship
  • U Visas (for victims of crimes [and their immediate family members] who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse and are willing to assist law enforcement and government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity).
  • T Visas (for certain victims of human trafficking and immediate family members to remain and work temporarily in the United States, typically if they agree to assist law enforcement in testifying against the perpetrators).
  • Temporary Protected Status
  • The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status
  • The Violence Against Women Act

They also have been vocal activists as ICE raids take place across the country.

RAICES has also held Facebook Lives and taken to the streets to educate people on their rigths should they encounter ICE.

And as Trump orders ICE to conduct nationwide raids, it’s more important than ever to know your rights.

They even host DACA renewal workshops for the community.

For immigrants who are eligible for DACA, RAICES has a program in which they offer legal services, advice, and assistance with the entire process. These workshops are invaluable to those who may be intimidated by the process or in fear that coming forward may land them before a judge.

And they need your help to keep doing the amazing work they’re doing.

Fall May Be Coming, But mitúShop’s Newest Collection Is Sure To Keep You ‘Cozy!’

I don’t know about you, but in my humble opinion that means the best days are almost here. You know, the rainy ones when you stay tucked away under a heavy cobija San Marcos all day and, if you’re lucky, you can hear the rain falling outside as you enjoy some sort of sopa or caldo, recalentado. Mmmmmmm. To have a proper lazy day, you need the proper outfit; like some joggers and a beanie in case you need to run out for a snack, or a sweatshirt that tells the world how you really feel. mitúShop’s newest collection is here and it’s everything you need for your fall look. Que cozy!

Poderosas can have lazy days too.

 In fact, they deserve them the most! We see you, jefas, putting in all that work day in and day out. This weather is a sign that you needed to kick back and enjoy chill. But first, start your day off with some té or cafecito in your new favorite mug, you’ve earned it Poderosa. 😉

Click here to shop the new Poderosa mug!

Your Fall 2020 sweater staple

Who doesn’t love a good burgundy sweater? The Que Cozy sweater comes in the perfect fall colors and it’s warm enough to keep you toasty. Que más quieres?

“Que Cozy” sweater is also available in dark heather grey. Shop here.

Maná was onto something when they said “Me Vale!”

Like we were saying, if you end up having to leave the house it’s most likely for a snack emergency. Who has time to do their hair in a situation like that? Cover your lazy day hair and simultaneously let people know you don’t really care because they shouldn’t be judging you anyway. Shame on them!

“Me Vale” beanie is also available in white, click this link to shop!

When the unexpected happens, remember to keep your cool…

No pos wow! How could you forget the snacks to begin with? At least these joggers will keep you comfy no matter what surprise trips you have to go on. But let’s hope not too many, there’s a cobija waiting for you at home.

Don’t forget your reusable bag!

The only reusable bag you need for your weekend trips to get the mandado. Get this for yourself or your favorite swap meeter, because who doesn’t love taking their time through the swap meet and coming up on great deals?

What’s better than caldo on a rainy day?

If anyone asks what you’re having for dinner, point to the window and tell them the 3 words anyone will understand: “It’s Caldo Season.” Whether it’s sopa de res or gallina, pozole, menudo, or something even better, there’s nothing like a steaming bowl of hot sopa on a rainy day. Provecho!

Check out our new “Caldo Season” tee!

Well, we’ve got everything we need for a lazy day! Now if only we could get some rain…

P.S. – This is only a taste of the entire collection, there’s plenty of other designs and products you have to check out!

Nordstrom

Updated May 20, 2020.

The only good thing about being diligent about social distancing? There is no dress code when it comes to working from home.

Still, there’s no denying that for many of us work-from-homers, comfort-first attire can be a bit of a bummer and at times a blow to self-esteem. After all, wearing sweats and your favorite old t-shirt might be fun but underneath they’re reminders that our broken routines are a symptom of a worldwide health crisis.
