SolidariTee Society - London

SolidariTee is a society to fundraise monies for legal aid for refugees and asylum-seekers.

SolidariTee is a society to fundraise monies for legal aid for refugees and asylum-seekers. This is done simply by selling unique T-shirts which are designed locally by those on the ground, and each design with a story to tell. SolidariTee societies are widely active across many UK universities.

SolidariTee takes simple action: each £10 T-Shirt we sell helps fund legal aid. Through funding lawyers, we deal with the refugee crisis at its root - by providing legal aid to get people out of traumatic limbos in temporary camps. This includes informing them of their rights and representing them in the asylum process. Without this aid, a person deserving of asylum may be deported from the very place they have fled. SolidariTee works with smaller, growing NGOs (including 'Advocates Abroad' last year) - where donations tangibly help them at critical stages of growth. With presence across 25 UK unis already, SolidariTee has raised over £45,000 since 2017, and has earned the support of several MPs and actors.
