Project Voice, Justice & Music

  • First Congregational UCC 1126 SW Park Ave Portland, OR (map)

Enjoy an evening of rousing and up-lifting music while supporting Project Voice, an immigrant rights program of the American Friends Service Committee. This program helps communities in Oregon and Washington create Rapid Response Teams and provides Know Your Rights trainings so that immigrants and their allies know how to respond and protect themselves during this uncertain and fearful time.

Four performers will entertain and inspire you in this benefit concert:  

  • Mark Babson is a violinist, teacher and peace activist  
  • Anna Fritz, a cello-wielding activist folksinger, sings original songs that touch on racial justice, spirituality, gender, and connection to the land 
  • Jill Townley is a singer, songwriter, international student advisor, and aspiring Quaker peacemaker 
  • Bajo Salario, a non-profit collective band, explores the revolutionary musical traditions of Latin American and the experiences of migrant workers in the United States 

Food and drink will be available for purchase

Co-sponsored by First  Congregational UCC Church, Multnomah Friends Meeting and West Hills Friends Church 

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door 

Pedro Sosa, AFSC Project Voice director, leads “Know Your Rights” training with immigrant communities throughout Oregon and Washington and Rapid Response training to equip allies of immigrants. There is a critical need for this program in the current political reality and the demand for these workshops has increased dramatically since the election. Your support for this work is critical. Come to learn more about the program and listen to great music. You will have an opportunity to directly impact the safety of immigrant families and support this AFSC program.
