SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR JUSTICE THIS VALENTINE'S DAY. Join Sanctuary DMV for a special event on February 14th to show your support for our neighbors who were victims of ICE raids last year and are now fighting against deportation. On July 11th and 12th, ICE detained twelve people in the Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods. According to accounts of some of the incidents, the DC police were directly involved in these ICE detentions. We stand with our neighbors and oppose DC police and ICE targeting and criminalizing members of our community and are helping to raise funds for legal defense and asylum costs.

Join us on V-day and bring your special someone(s) for:
♥ Salsa dance class for the early birds 7:00-7:30
♥ A capoeira demonstration from ECAC's own FICA DC
♥ Live music from Brooklyn The Kid and others TBD [Check out Brooklyn the Kid's amazing work here: https://vamgmtt.wixsite.com/brooklynthekid"]
♥ Food from local restaurants
♥ Drinks
♥ Books & art for sale!

All funds raised go to cover the legal fees for one family who is seeking asylum and fighting their deportation back to a country where they are not safe. Read more about last year's raids, and the community response, here: https://wapo.st/2HN4vwY

Suggested donation of $10-$20. Nobody will be turned away at the door because of lack of funds.
