Along with Writers for Migrant Justice and Latinx in Publishing, The Poetry Project will host a benefit event to support Immigrant Families Together, which posts bail bonds, provides pro bono legal representation, detention assistance, and ongoing support after release to detained migrants. With escalating hostility and violence directed toward migrants, we share the conviction that writers, artists, and culture workers have a responsibility to support vital work that is already underway, and to envision new kinds of collective action as well. Attendees are encouraged to donate $10-20, or what they can, with all proceeds going to Immigrant Families Together.
