RAICES- REFUGEE AND IMMIGRANT CENTER FOR EDUCATION AND LEGAL SERVICES

RAICES provides free and low cost legal representation for children, unaccompanied minors, parents and families detained at the US border. Based out of Texas, with over 130 attorneys, they are poised to deliver direct assistance to Latinx and other immigrant families currently detained at the US/Mexico border. Funds for RAICES go directly to bonds that help get parents out of detention and reunited with their children, legal support for unaccompanied children and children separated from their parents, and legal defense for all immigrants seeking asylum in the United States. We try to keep our charities local at Poseurs when we can, but this is too important. This month we want to donate as much as we can to fight the horrifying human rights abuses perpetrated by our government against people seeking refuge in the US. We started Dope Moments over a year ago because we knew things would get worse before they got better, because we knew that we would need a time and space for our community to come together and grieve, engage in critical self-reflection, and take action. If you ever had any doubt about what Dope Moments is about- this is what we’re about- standing with others in their struggles, building the emotional resilience and courage to stay engaged especially when things are really hard and really horrifying. Join us and bring all your friends in July to support this important charity. Thursdays at 6:15pm. Dance Underground. All bodies, all levels welcome. Give whatever you can afford.
