SMC In-House Production
Producer: Somerville Media Center / Somerville Neighborhood News
Description: A program that shines a light on the work of Somerville non-profits and other community-oriented organizations or groups.
From the event site:
Join Somerville band Stanley and the Undercovers for an evening of great music, dancing, and community to support immigrants.
Help support support legal funding for those seeking refuge in our country. All proceeds go to the United Legal Defense Fund for Immigrants, supporting immigrants facing detention/deportation. The United Legal Defense Fund gives grants to legal defense organizations offering pro-bono assistance to local immigrants. Deportation proceedings are civil matters, lawyers are not provided by the court. Those with legal representation have a five times higher chance of achieving a favorable outcome.
In Partnership with the cities of Cambridge and Somerville, Mayor of Cambridge Marc McGovern, Mayor of Somerville Joseph Curtatone, and the Cambridge Community Foundation. For more information go to: https://www.gofundme.com/f/united-legal-defense-fund
