Tamales Sale to Support Arely!!!!

Tamale Sale to Support Arely!

Background
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.

Support BG’s Saloon Workers Fighting Wage Theft!

Sign this petition to support workers from BG’s Saloon, a now closed restaurant that used to be in Destiny Mall, fighting to reclaim stolen wages and two weeks of severance pay.
