The last year and a half has not been easy. Even through the xenophobic attacks and the health and economic ramifications of COVID-19, we’ve never stopped fighting with and for the families in our care.

CASA is always trying to find new ways to support our community, which is why we want to share that August is National Make-a-Will Month! We are excited to announce our recent partnership with FreeWill: a free online resource that guides you through the process of writing a legally valid will in 20 minutes or less.

I know this is not the kind of message you normally see from us, but having a legal will secures your future and protects the important people in your life — on your own terms. It is crucial that everyone in our community proactively documents their wishes to eliminate future stress for their family and loved ones.

You may think you are too young to start making your plans or that writing wills is just for the wealthy, but everyone can benefit from practicing agency over their own future. FreeWill is completely free and accessible to all.

CASA is committed to empowering immigrants to fight for climate justice, climate reform, and equitable recovery from the current health and economic crisis, and part of that fight includes keeping our loved ones safe — and taking control of our economic futures.

When you create your will using FreeWill, you can also make an optional gift to CASA at no cost now, ensuring that together, we can uplift immigrant families for generations to come.

Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
