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.

hello, WFMU pals!

Yes chresti you're right about that. This is the first NY gig that I know of. They've played a few shows on the east coast on the current tour already actually.

Being lazy, I'm just going to say what GST said (taking more words).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 7:03pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

ngh, you're welcome to any of my comments, and i hope that if you feel so inspired, you may share about what delicious food may be on your menu (you always seem to be cooking up something tasty)

I have more eggplant then I know what to do w/ in my garden, but only know stirfry recipes. It's not a really a thing in Mexico, otherwise it's other East Asian recipes. Any recipes welcome. I like to learn! (having bok choi, carrots, chilis (of course), sesame noodles, miso sauce, and soy, and an egg right now. I now have ghost peppers longer then my hand.
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 7:13pm northguineahills:

I also know how to cook Caribbean, Indian and Thai, (but the later two take quite a bit of work)>

ngh: i'll be right over! (yummmm to all of that)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 7:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

i would love to improve my Indian cooking. It is a LOT of preparation for a proper meal.

And Rob, thank you for the gorgeous stream of sound entering my home and ears…

Suggestion for NGH: Eggplant->ratatouille
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 7:22pm northguineahills:

@Mitten John! On it. I'm not an expert on Italian cooking (and all of its regions), but it's usually easy. I'll look for a Sardinian/Sicilian recipe.
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 7:24pm northguineahills:

although I make a mean vegan pizza, w/ either pita or naan....(not vegan, but usually cook vegan/veggie).
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 7:26pm northguineahills:

@GST: My Indian-American friend gave me lessons, and she said it took her teen years-20s to figure out what she was doing. I usually just make West African curries (there is an African market here, so it's easier to get ingredients).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 7:31pm Fox:

Congrats ( i suppose ) @Bas!

My second discovery was it had already taken place @Michael! Can't say i followed it too much.
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 8:05pm northguineahills:

@Bas: Never heard of Teach-In (I wasn't born yet, and Eurovision viewing/news wasn't available here until the last decade). But I knew the next winner ABBA (as does everyone else).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 8:07pm Michael 98145:

I don't think our pathetic cable provider provided any coverage of the event ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 8:09pm Bas NL:

Like ABBA Teach-In were known mainstream artists with nice poppy tunes.. ABBA from Sweden were better by miles though.

Hmm ... "Madonna arrived in Israel on Tuesday and is scheduled to perform at the contest’s grand final on Saturday night. The bombastic live show, including supermodel Bar Refaeli as one of the announcers, is expected to attract an international television audience of about 200 million viewers. "
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 8:28pm Michael 98145:

Forgot about this : "Israel won the right to host the competition after Israeli singer Netta captured the public vote in the contest last year with the song “Toy,” a high-energy reference to the #MeToo movement, replete with chicken sounds."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 8:31pm Bas NL:

Yes, and so next year The Netherlands will host Eurovision.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/18/19 8:31pm Rob Weisberg:

The Dutch victory means that we can send Bas to report on next year's Eurovision final which therefore will be in the Netherlands!
