Border of Lights
Border of Lights is working in collaboration with other groups to turn back the denationalization laws that have passed in the DR.
This year BOL is partnering with People's Theatre Project and the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights to bring the one-person play: "Eddie's Perejil" to Washington Heights. This quote by a member of a preview audience captures the reaction of many: "How could my culture, my people, carry out genocide. I didn't want to believe it. I COULDN'T believe it."
We believe this powerful performance can be a catalyst for community dialogue and an opportunity to connect the struggle that all those who are undocumented face, from Haitians in Dominican Republic to Undocumented immigrants in NYC.
Please join our "Producer's Circle" -- along with Julia Alvarez, Bill Eichner, and Junot Diaz -- so that we can reach our goal of $3000 in sponsors, we ask that each producer make a pledge of $100 or more. Proceeds will be shared among the three organizations for additional program work in the US and in DR
Or just join us on September 20th for this powerful performance and discussion on the intersection of race, immigration, and justice. To purchase your tickets or to make a donation please visit: http://bit.ly/eddiesperejil.
