We owe tremendous thanks to a long list of musicians and organizations for jumping in to put this series together with us.

Who will benefit? Proceeds will be donated to three non-profits currently working with recent arrivals:

Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC offers free social service consultations as well as legal advice. Their offices are located adjacent to the Shrine.

Cayuga Centers work to reunite families and provide comprehensive care for unaccompanied immigrant minors. They operate two facilities in Harlem.

The Mexican Coalition has had people meeting the buses and helping new asylum-seekers get the services they need to adapt to life in NYC. They are based in the South Bronx.
