Like many Americans, we have been transfixed and disturbed by recent events. In a very real sense, the Boston Foundation and other community foundations across America were created to support immigrants, and that has been a large part of our mission since 1915. We have always funded the work of organizations that help immigrants and refugees acclimate and feel welcomed into our community. In November of last year, we responded to the anxiety following the election by providing emergency grants to CAIR-MA, the Irish International Immigrant Center and the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition. Now we are considering other investments in this important work. As a community, we must stand together in this time of uncertainty to voice our deep concern and reaffirm our values.
