The Assembly was founded as a place for you to take care of yourself – body, mind, soul — so you can have the energy and strength to take on the rest of the world. It’s a calm, empowering oasis created in a time that doesn’t feel that way in our country. It’s a space talk or simply breathe, sweat, or press pause when you need to. And it’s an extremely powerful community that can come together to enact change. You are a part of this community.
This week, this concept has felt more crucial than ever as we watch and listen and read about what is happening on our border. The Assembly Members, community organizers, moms, and founders of In Good Company Katie Hintz-Zambrano and Sarah Ewick came to us with an idea for a fundraiser to stop the inhumane separation of immigrant children from their parents under the administration’s “zero tolerance policy”. We are honored to team up with In Good Company, Katie, and Sarah for this event.
Join us for the fundraiser next Tuesday, June 26 from 6-8pm at The Assembly.
Within minutes, Katie and Sarah gathered an incredible amount of donations from local partners for a silent auction, raffle, and evening of food & drinks to support the cause. In under 5 hours, with only a few social media posts, this event sold out.
We just opened up another group of tickets for you. 100% of the ticket sales, funds from the raffle and auction, and onsite donations will go to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Central and South Texas.
If you can’t attend, here’s a list of other resources and ways to help fight family separation at the border. If you’d like to get involved in our event, email us. Anytime this week, stop by The Assembly to write a letter of support to the families, call your representatives, or donate.
Thank you for being a part of this community,
