Get Involved



CAIRO is proud of the way it manages the generous contributions, big or small, from individual donors, corporations and other organizations. Regardless of the amount you give, your contribution really matters to our passionate advocacy and culturally-responsive organizing.

Your tax-deductible donations will help us provide policymakers with the most timely, constructive policy approaches on various issues, demanding them to consider our immigrant and refugee communities in the State in every bill they author and every vote they cast.

Are you interested in helping us in our civic engagement drives and policy advocacy efforts?
