In connection with Bay Area Writers Resist and the national “Writers for Migrant Justice” fundraising events to support the work of Immigrant Families Together (IFT), we’re hosting a reading with Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Julia Delgado Lupera, Maw Shein Win, Chris Feliciano Arnold, and Tongo Eisen-Martin. 20% of our sales from the night will be donated directly to Immigrant Families Together. If you cannot attend, but wish to donate you can donate directly here.

Immigrant Families Together (IFT) was founded in June 2018 in response to the immigration policy separating families at the U.S./Mexico border. They pay bonds for parents in detention and work to reunite them with their children. Additionally, they support over 100 reunited families as they recover from their detention trauma and adjust to life in the U.S. while their asylum cases are adjudicated. All of the IFT volunteers are working pro-bono. Thus, All of your funds will go directly to rapid response needs. The New York Times article “How Regular Americans Can Help Reunite Migrant Families ” says more about the impact of IFT and why we love them.
