Buy Delicious Tamales, Support Vecinos Unidos

From SURJ:

This week we will be hosting another fundraiser for Rice County Neighbors United/Vecinos Unidos and the establishment of a Northfield Immigrant Rights Coalition. Please support our fundraiser Friday, May 26th from 10:00am-2:00pm in Sayles. The money we are raising will support the weekly costs of the Latinx community like child care, travel expenses, and healthy snacks. It takes money to keep organizing going, and we need you to help out!! All are welcome!!

Northfield's Latino and immigrant community is at constant risk from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the deportations, harm, and anxiety they cause. Immigrants and allies are coming together to form a coalition of people, institutions, and local government officials committed to prevent the harm and danger that deportation causes to Northfield. We need your help to fundraise money to keep organizing efforts going!! Right now, we need a small amount of money each week to pay for travel costs, childcare, and healthy snacks that organizers from Rice County Neighbors United/Vecinos Unidos, Northfield are paying out of pocket. Please come to support our fundraiser on Friday: there you can learn more about organizing in Northfield as well as buy a tamal and donate money to the cause.

In solidarity,

- Cruz Morales, SURJ-Northfield, and friends
