#DCBrewsFightsBack Raises Over $4,000 for Immigration-Related Causes

On June 30, over 40 bar, brewery, and restaurant locations came together for #DCBrewsFightsBack, an effort coordinated by DCBeer and Helping Oppressed Peoples Survive (HOPS). These locations came together to support the national day of action by donating proceeds to organizations working on behalf of immigrants and encouraging patrons to make their voices heard. The total raised by these organizations is currently over $4,300 and has benefited organizations like CASA, the CAIR Coalition, the ACLU, and RAICES.

The “1 Dollar, 1 Call, 1 Purpose” encouraged the D.C. beer community to come together to raise funds for local and national organizations working to reunite families along the U.S. border and providing support to immigrant communities. Patrons were also encouraged to take action in support of #FamiliesBelongTogether by contacting their elected officials.
