Tamale Sale to Support Arely!
Our friend Arely Tomas, member of the Workers’ Center of Central New York, mother, advocate for social justice, and friend, is selling homemade delicious tamales to raise legal funds to fight deportation so she can stay with her family. Since the beginning of the year, Arely has had to regularly attend “check ins” with Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement (ICE). These check-ins have been deeply harrowing for Arely and her family, especially her three young children. Arely is about $800 from her $7000 goal to pay necessary legal expenses so she can stay with her family. Please support this important fundraiser. By supporting Arely, you are sending a strong message that we truly support immigrant members of our community.

Hi friends, thanks for all the donations for this fundraising campaign! Your donation will be put to good use: We do outreach to visit farmworkers all over Upstate and Central NY, provide trainings and workshops so workers can organize and fight back unjust working conditions and are at the forefront of the struggle for dignity, respect and sanctuary for immigrants and refugees. More than anytime organizations like the Workers’ Center of CNY need to exist and thrive and you are doing your part with your donations and volunteer work. Muchas gracias!
Recently we were able to hire two more staff: one full time and one part time and that was only posible thanks to your support.
Please help me to get to $1000, we are now at $700. The funds we raise will allow us to have money to pay for transportation, expenses related to trainings and advocacy and much more. Mil gracias!
