Fundraiser for East Bay Sanctuary Covenant
Get Inspired + Catered Eats + Music

Join us for catered light dinner and music by Emerson Adrian Gale

 

Founded in 1982, East Bay Sanctuary Covenant is dedicated to offering sanctuary, solidarity, support, community organizing assistance, advocacy, and legal services to those escaping war, terror, political persecution, intolerance, exploitation, and other expressions of violence.

In supporting an organization that works with refugees, here are a few reasons I chose East Bay Sanctuary Covenant:

  • They are local, with volunteer opportunities

  • They have a track record of 30 years of serving immigrants and refugees

  • Their member organizations are diverse and community-rooted 

  • They work especially closely with vulnerable populations, including LGBT individuals

  • One of their coordinators was honored with an Unsung Hero of Compassion Award by the Dalai Lama

Donations appreciated in any amount at the fundraiser or you can make a tax-deductible donation online here.

All are welcome.
