Lorenzo drove more than 2000 miles from California to Upstate NY to find his children. His children were in the custody of the state after their mother, without Lorenzo’s knowledge, attempted to cross the northern border.

At Slocum House, he found a place to rest, sleep, and eat as he worked with local volunteer lawyers to

reunite with his children. Immigrants staying at the house offered him warm and nourishing food.

Lorenzo found solidarity.

We can’t let hospitality stop at Slocum House. Keep Slocum open for immigrants and farmworkers.
