This is a night to Defend the Defenders!

Maru Mora Villalpando has given much to the movements for immigrants and worker's rights. Through decades of dedicated organizing with the communities most impacted by our nation's inhumane immigration policies, her struggle has inspired many to action, to fight for a more just and equitable world. Now the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency has targeted her for deportation because of her activism.

On the night of April 13th, we will rally around Maru and communities of undocumented immigrants and latinx farmworkers she works with. We will be raising money for her fight against deportation, raising awareness about the ongoing struggles she's been a part of and raising a ruckus as we dance through the night.

There will be a silent auction throughout the evening with all sorts of sweet items, live jazz with the Blue Root Quartet, a salsa lesson with Rumba Northwest and a salsa dance with live music by the Bilongo Quintet.

$10.00 suggested donation at the door.
We hope to see you there!
