#HERETOSTAY ART OF RESILIENCE
L Ross Gallery / 5040 Sanderlin Ave., Ste. 104 January 13, 2017 - January 27, 2017
Collaborative fundraising exhibition in which local artists are coming together to express their support for the immigrant community through their work. A percentage of all artwork sold will benefit the Community Legal Center’s Immigrant Justice Program, Mid-South Immigration Advocates, and Latino Memphis’s Derechos Immigration Program. Money raised will provide matching funds for a grant from The Assisi Foundation enabling the creation of a Joint Immigration Pro Bono Coordinator who will recruit and manage volunteer lawyers working with the Mid-South’s immigrant population for the 3 organizations. Tickets for reception: $25 per person, available at the door or online at https://clcmemphis.ticketleap.com/heretostay/.
