Friday, January 26, 7-9pm, Columbus Mennonite Church, 35 Oakland Park Ave.

From families being ripped apart, the near-end of DACA, a pending renewal of the “clean” Dream Act, and re-ratification of visas from Trump’s administration; the effects are being felt on a national level, and locally here in Columbus. From protesting the annulment of DACA, fighting for a “clean” Dream Act, mobilizing at ICE [Immigration Customs Enforcement] check-ins, to organizing around cases, we must protect and support all people who are facing ICE, however they choose to respond.

Edith Espinal is one of the many immigrants who has chosen Sanctuary as a form of resistance against deportation. Join us at a space of resistance: Columbus Mennonite Church, where Edith is in Sanctuary. This will be a unique event as Edith invites you to that space to share your music, share your art, and share your stories — while raising funds for Edith’s legal fees. We’re here to support Edith, her resistance, and the broader movement for immigrants’ justice.

There will be an open-mic open to all to share their experiences and struggles that intersect with immigrants’ justice.

Suggested donation entry is $5-$10; if you can give more, do so. If not, give what you can!

Hosted by International Socialist Organization [ISO] Columbus.
