Minneapolis, MN - On June 23, supporters of the immigrant rights movement joined together for a fundraiser for the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAc) at the Red Sea. The fundraiser featured local hip hop and spoken word artist Guante, DJ Victor1200, as well as Twin Cities Bomba, which is made up of members of Malamanya Musica.

The fundraiser helped MIRAc in their efforts to rebuild after the loss of their office and everything in it after the massive fire that destroyed Walker Church on May 27.

For those that couldn’t make it to the event but still want to help, you can make a tax-deductible donation online to MIRAc and the two other groups that also lost their offices in the Walker Church fire (the Welfare Rights Committee and Communities United Against Police Brutality) here: http://www.razoo.com/story/Walker-Nonprofit-Recovery-Fundraiser.
