On Sunday March 26th the first Solidarity for Sanctuary benefit took place at the Hi Hat. My good friend Doris Munoz created the seres initially as a means to help raise funds to protect her parents from deportation, but now strives to use the series as a means to help even more undocumented families. The sold out event featured performances by Cuco, Royaljag, The Shingles, Dr. Doctor and Disco Shrine, all consisting of first generation Americans, all standing together in support for the cause.
'Twas a beautiful night indeed and I'm looking forward to seeing what more good happens when we work together!
