In the spirit of bringing together the narratives of our undocumented community and our immigrant brothers and sisters, we have created a fundraising event that will debut this upcoming Spring in San Francisco, California. The event is called, #UndocuFest. It will take place on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at El Rio in the Mission District of San Francisco from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
Our goal is to bring together artists, musicians, dancers, poets, activists, community organizations, educational institutions, members of all communities, families, friends, allies and other types of performers who are open and willing to celebrate the strength of the undocumented & immigrant community in solidarity.
This event is a first of its kind and we are very excited about the community support we have received thus far. #UndocuFest will bring about much needed dialogue surrounding various topics affecting immigrant communities, but more than that, it will create a space in which we can honor the resilience of the DREAMer, undocumented, and immigrant communities.
We will use art, photography, storytelling, music, community engagement, positive voices and many other forms of expression to uplift our movement, which is critical in this political climate.
If you, your organization, or anyone that you know would like to take part in #UndocuFest in some way, shape, or form, please let us know. We are very excited to be working with individuals, groups and communities in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, California.
We are currently looking for performers, artwork, monetary donations, sponsorships and volunteers. There is always a way to participate and support our movement, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us and tell us about your ideas on collaboration.
We are looking to finalize our list of sponsors, volunteers and performers by January 1, 2018. Until then, we are accepting art and performance sign-ups, as well as sponsors, donors and volunteers for the event.
If joining us in February might not be the right time for you, no worries! We would be happy if you shared our event with others that may be interested in joining #UndocuFest. Of course, any and all are welcome.
