Ofrendas: Solidarity with Migrant FamiliesSunday, July 29 at 4:00 pm
The Institute for Emerging Adulthood and Smith College School for Social Work are proud to present Ofrendas: Solidarity with Migrant Families. This event is a fundraiser for the Southern Poverty Law Center: FREE our Families. 100% of proceeds will go towards immigration bonds to reunite detained families.
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.
Our sliding scale tickets are offered as an invitation to choose a price point that best evokes the power of home – a cozy nido/nest, a rooted arbol/tree, the landscape altering rio/river, the journey of a camino/path, the radiance of an estrella/star. Choose your donation level for our open seating plan. 100% of proceeds from ticket sales go towards RAICES Family Reunification Bonds.
