Past Event: Silent Auction & Gallery

April 27, 2017, 7:00 pm @ Pizza-M

We invite you to join us at Pizza-M in Downtown Urbana for our first silent auction! Items generously donated by Amara Yoga & Arts, Living Yoga Center, Neutral Cycle, Twin City Derby Girls, local artists, and many more! After fleeing persecution or violence, refugees go through an 18-24 month screening process before arriving in our community. More than 50% of all refugees are children. These displaced families need help with their first steps. Help us provide housing, clothing, food, language training, and job placement to refugee families as they work to become self-sufficient members of our community. RSVP on Facebook

UIUC Students, Professors, Staff, and Campus Community Members: TAKE ACTION NOW! We want to build on the success of our previous letter-writing event by including the campus community!

Stop by the Illini Union Room A, between 10 am—1 pm pm on Monday, March 6, 2017, and help us in this endeavor. This action will only take 5 minutes of your day. CU Immigration Forum will provide all the necessary supplies (paper, envelopes, & stamps) as well as talking points and sample scripts in case you need help writing your letter.
