There is no fee to join Bridge to Rutland. And there are many ways to contribute: Financially, by offering a home to an asylum-seeker, or by volunteering to work on public outreach, to drive asylum-seekers to appointments, to translate, to organize fundraisers, to run errands, to help find lawyers or doctors willing to offer pro-bono services, and so much more. We would love to have you!

Why we do this work:

“There is an unshakable moral principle that says one cannot do evil in order to achieve good.” – Archbishop Oscar Romero, assassinated in El Salvador in 1980 for speaking truth to power and standing up for the poor

“It’s injustice that motivates us to do something, to take risks, knowing that if we don’t, things will remain the same.” – Digna Ochoa, human rights attorney and nun in México

“The poor of the world are crying out for schools and doctors, not guns and generals.” – Oscar Arias Sánchez, Costa Rica – Nobel Peace Prize for his Peace Plan for Central America in 1987
