Organizations supporting the rights of immigrants and refugees:

(For more suggestions see https://www.bustle.com/p/9-immigration-organizations-to-donate-to-if-you-want-to-support-daca-recipients-80757.)

National Immigration Law Center: Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

New York Immigration Coalition: The New York Immigration Coalition aims to achieve a fairer and more just society that values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all. The NYIC promotes immigrants’ full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York’s diverse immigrant communities.

Arab American Family Support Center (New York City): The Arab-American Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to immigrant communities throughout New York City.

Action NYC: ActionNYC connects New Yorkers to free, safe immigration legal help. You can make an appointment to learn your immigration legal options and get immigration application assistance. There are ActionNYC sites in all five boroughs. Appointments are required. Your appointment will be in your language.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States. The work is truly lifesaving because there are nearly 80 countries around the world where it is a crime to be LGBTQ, with consequences up to and including the death penalty. For this reason, Immigration Equality fights to obtain asylum in the United States for LGBTQ and HIV-positive refugees - with a remarkable 99% win rate.

International Refugee Assistance Project: The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) organizes law students and lawyers to develop and enforce a set of legal and human rights for refugees and displaced persons. Mobilizing direct legal aid and systemic policy advocacy, IRAP serves the world’s most persecuted individuals and empowers the next generation of human rights leaders.

International Rescue Committee: The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND): KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of children who enter the US immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety and well-being.

Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF): AALDEF is a national organization that protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans by combining litigation, advocacy, education, and community organizing. Issues / focus include immigrant rights, civic participation and voting rights, economic justice for workers, language access to services, educational equity, housing and environmental justice, and the elimination of anti-Asian violence, police misconduct, and human trafficking.

Make the Road New York (MRNY): MRNY builds the power of Latino and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and survival services.

Make the Road New Jersey (MRNJ): Make the Road New Jersey builds the power of immigrant and working class communities in New Jersey to achieve dignity and justice through community organizing, legal and support services, transformative education and policy innovation.

Oh you'll hear it again chresti... northguineahills: the Malawi Mouse Boys got their name because they were discovered singing while selling mouse kebabs on the road! They actually did play in NY once a few years ago...

Good evening rob!
I was chatting about different WFMU Djs with listener TDK60 while we staffed at Interference Archive yesterday. And it occurred to me that you might have some wisdom regarding some “political currents” in internationally produced music.
Interference Archive, which is around the corner from Barbes, collects social movement materials.
So we’ve got a collection of “political” music. Much of the Paredón music label catalog, Nueva Canción, Víctor Jara, onto illimani, etc, North American folk, South African labor lps, revolutionary songs of Mozambique and on.
I wonder if you might have some leads in regions unknown to us
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 1/12/19 6:37pm chresti:

Golden Festival. Makes me think of a Roy Shirley song about a golden festival, in Jamaica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/12/19 6:39pm хtina:

oh, i was wondering what was going to happen with the goldenfest recording...well, thanks for archiving all those years.

"...for all you beautiful, lovely, fantastic people!" (he says in the song).

Thanks, to the max, steveo!

Hi kevlicki - it's not necessarily an area of expertise for me but if you want, send me an email via the email link near the top of the page and I might have some thoughts / additional contacts...
  Sat. 1/12/19 6:45pm kevlicki:

Will do! We’re always looking to expand our awareness of contemporary and historical stuff.
Thanks!

Good evening, Rob & friends!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/12/19 6:52pm Rob W:

Thanks хtina - yes, all Free Music Archive (FMA) content is still up at www.freemusicarchive.org, including everything we've recorded at Golden Fest the past few years (which includes the tracks we're playing from last year's Golden Fest of course). But sadly WFMU no longer operates the FMA. (It's a little unclear what the company that acquired it, KitSplit, plans to do in terms of adding new content - so far I'm not sure if they've added any.)
