Stand with Immigrants: Reviva, Slam Poets and Café Bomba

Melting, Schmelting

Apparently, there are people out there who aren't fans of melting pots. They despise flavor and absolutely hate fondue. There isn't much you can do to change their minds, but you can try to drown out their calls for blandness with the voices of your friends and comrades by joining the N.M. Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice, for Stand with Immigrants—a day of music, poetry, art, food and fellowship that celebrates our nation's immigrants. The call has gone out for those of all ages and cultures to join together in a spirit of openness and communication at the First Unitarian Church from 6:30 to 9:30pm this Saturday, April 7. Donations are invited—cash and checks preferred. (Joshua Lee)

Stand with Immigrants!: Reviva, Slam Poets & Café Bomba!!

Please come to the Spring Fundraiser for the NM Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice AND definitely invite your friends!  We ask you to join us to stand strong together, to be with community, and to have a moment to unwind and recharge. 

If you don't know the band REVIVA, it's time you do! It's good and conscientious music to get down to. Not to mention, we'll have two slam poets, Manuel & Sarita Gonzalez (Sarita is in 6th grade and already poised to be a voice of wisdom in our age).

We'll have a brief immigration update. Then immediately move into UU's social hall for more music -- provided by Café Bomba (Dan Golden, guitar; Alexi Castillo, percussion; Bob Gusch, flute).

A highlight will be art and gifts for sale created by three members of the immigrant community. Purchases will help support these individuals and their families.  "In This House" signs/posters; plus art by Ilene Weiss will also be available (most proceeds being donated).

Donations are encouraged (this is a fundraiser).  All are welcome, however, regardless of ability to pay. Skip the line at the door and donate in advance online. Cash or checks are preferred at the event.

Mark your calendars today!  Doors open at 5:45 so you can check out the gift tables.
