Hey Friends - August 9 is my birthday and I'll be spending it running 100 MILES from NEW YORK CITY to PHILADELPHIA to raise funds and awareness for the valuable work of the ACLU's Immigrants’ Rights Project.

Right now, conditions in government-run detention facilities are unconscionable and inhumane. Immigrant children are being traumatized in DHS detention centers, and inaction by Congress is exacerbating the situation.

I'm grateful that the ACLU is fighting in the courts to reunite families. They're at the border, aggressively monitoring Customs and Border Patrol. And they're mobilizing in Washington to demand that no additional taxpayer dollars be used to fund the abuse of immigrants.

That's why I'm running from Ellis Island + the Statue of Liberty to Independence Hall + the Liberty Bell. Because whether someone arrives by boat, by air plane, or by foot, the fundamental constitutional protections of due process and equal protection embodied in our Constitution and Bill of Rights apply to every single human being, regardless of immigration status.

Please join me and donate below.

And if you're up for it, join me for a few miles on the road to Philadelphia, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Reach out to me at through instagram @dzimerman and let's do this together!

I’ve set an ambitious goal and I hope I can count on you to help me get there. Your donation, no matter the amount, will support the ACLU’s work to safeguard everyone’s rights – especially the most vulnerable in our society.

Thanks so much for your help!
