Support El Comedor

This #Giving Tuesday, DSA San Diego asks you to make a gift to El Comedor, an autonomous migrant-run kitchen in Tijuana that serves meals and provides other resources to asylum seekers and people in need. The collective that runs this kitchen, Contra Viento y Marea, was born out of the self-organization of caravan members during the siege of Benito Juarez in December 2018.

The Central American exodus of 2018 and the caravans that followed brought a number of asylum seekers to Tijuana.
