Repairing the Breach - Northwest
Songs for the Journey
Come join us for a virtual concert on Saturday, May 15, at 7:00 PM Pacific Time - where we will seek to "repair the breaches" within our nation, our city, and our families - from the ravages of the virus, racism, fear, and the many breaches that divide us from each other.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be joined for this concert by the dynamic award-winning activist duo Emma's Revolution! (Pat Humphries & Sandy O)
This concert is a fund-raiser for Project Voice. Project Voice is an immigrant rights program of the American Friends Service Committee, serving immigrant communities in Oregon and Washington. Project Voice Program Director, Pedro Sosa, travels (now virtually) to rural immigrant communities to empower them through training and leadership building, Rapid Response planning, and Know Your Rights education. In this past year, with the devastation brought by COVID and wildfires to these communities, Pedro has organized mutual aid and COVID education efforts, in coalition with other immigrant justice organizations. We greatly appreciate your support of Project Voice to advocate for and assist those whose presence and work in this country sustains us all.
