Charity Spotlight: Make The Road New York

With our second installment of Box Not Found: Stories coming up this Friday at Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City, we will be collecting donations for the NYC-based organization, Make The Road New York.

Founded in 2007, Make The Road New York supports the NYC immigrant community by focusing on transforming legal and survival services, education, community organization, and policy innovation. By implementing programs such as Adult Literacy, Legal Services, and Leadership Development, they give the NYC immigrant community the support and advocacy needed in the face of systematic discrimination, economic hardship, and social inequalities.

We hope that you’ll come out to our performance this Friday and support this cause!  If you would like to find out more about Make The Road New York, see the information below:

Charity Spotlight: Chica Project

As part of our Box Not Found: Stories concert coming up this Sunday, we will be collecting donations for the Boston-based organization, Chica Project.

Founded in 2011, the organization has the goal to develop a strength-based youth leadership program that was rooted in cultural competency and the celebration of Latino culture.  After moving to Boston from Florida in 1993, founder Nurys Camargo witnessed an overwhelming need and opportunity to align a growing network of Latina leaders with first-generation Latinas living in the Commonwealth’s most underserved communities, which ultimately sparked her desire to form Chica Project.

Chica Project serves young Latinas and other Women of Color who have been systematically disconnected from economic opportunity, resulting in limited access to education, financial stability, social capital, political power, and sufficient human services. Through programs such as the Empowerment Institute, Queens Rise, and UWander, they address this opportunity divide by providing young, urban Latinas who are growing up in communities disconnected from economic opportunity and influence with access to intergenerational mentorship, professional employment experience, and leadership development.

We hope that you’ll come out to our performance this Sunday and support this cause!  If you would like to find out more about Chica Project, see the information below:
