Doors open at 3:30 pm
Show at 4:00 pm

274 Main Street
Northampton, MA

This event is a fundraiser for Southern Poverty Law Center. 100% of proceeds will go towards SPLC immigrant rights initiatives including attorney representation of migrant parents separated from their children and challenging deportation proceedings to safeguard immigrant rights.

Ofrendas: Solidarity with Migrant Families is offered as contemplation for our practice, minds and hearts: a gathering of financial resources to reunite migrant families, a briefing on the current immigration crisis and a calling in of life, love, and powerful community ritual.

A panel of speakers will present on current policy, impact, and implications for migrant families. Diana Alvarez and ensemble will perform excerpted readings from her multimedia performance, Quiero Volver: A Xicanx Opera, an exploration of Xicanx curanderismo, themes of death, motherlessness, political consciousness, and building communities/families underpin the rituals offered.
