BENEFITING: IMMIGRANT LEGAL ADVOCACY PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2015
Crazy thing, but nearly everyone here, except for Native Americans, comes from somewhere else. Our goal with this campaign is to highlight the greatness that came before us by paying tribute to the most influential people in our lives and where they came from.
You can participate by donating to honor someone who made a difference in your life, even tell us where they came from if you want. ILAP will take your donation and add it to all the others we get and then turn around and give it all back to the community in the form of immigration legal aid. This is really important if you are a low income immigrant and want to access work, food and housing, not to mention education and economic security.
We've all had ancestors who were in this position. We help today's immigrants, who are tomorrow's economic drivers in Maine. Just like your forefathers and mothers were.
Thanks for helping and Happy New Year!
