Updates and Inspiration from the Field
To support this ambitious “re-emergence,” ICF has been rapidly building the capacity of the BCS Food Security Alliance, an initiative we have been incubating over the last 7 years to increase access to fresh, healthy food, improve community health and resilience, and promote sustainable local food production. The Alianza para la Seguridad Alimentaria de BCS (ASA) is positioned to be hub for united action, creative, long-term solutions, research and support for “cultivating health food systems.”
Defensa Ambiental Noroeste (DAN) es una organización constituída de abogados de interés público dedicados a la protección ambiental.

DAN también proporciona asesoría legal para comunidades, individuos y organizaciones para fortalecer sus estrategias para la conservación de la biodiversidad y el patrimonio natural.
Over the course of the past two years, through a series of dinners, conversations, and campaigns, This is About Humanity (TIAH) has raised close to $1 million for vulnerable communities at the border. When COVID-19 hit, TIAH rapidly pivoted to continue supporting communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Restricted movement of people across the border, and even more limited opportunities to request asylum required innovative formats for continued engagement and support. As a result, TIAH structured a series of creative cross border matching grant campaigns during the pandemic to provide support to these vulnerable communities.
