The Issue: Transit Prohibitively Expensive for Many Refugees

When refugees resettle in new countries, government agencies often help them attain funding for rent, medical care, and food. In California, no such program exists to help new refugees attain transportation, so they are often stranded in their communities, far from the city center, and cannot venture out to find work or take classes without aid.

The Campaign: Funding Bus Passes for New Immigrants

If this Grassroots campaign raises $360, then Alliance for African Assistance can provide five one-month bus passes for newly situated immigrants or refugees. Each additional $72 raised will fun a one-month bus pass for another immigrant or refugee. With bus passes, refugees can take public transportation into the city to get to jobs or schools. The passes will also enable recipients to take English, computer-literacy, and transportation classes at the Alliance to help them achieve self-sufficiency.
