A Benefit for "Freedom For Immigrants" Non-profit
Freedom for Immigrants is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system.

We are the only nonprofit in the country monitoring the human rights abuses faced by immigrants detained by ICE through a national hotline and network of volunteer detention visitors, while also modeling a community-based alternative to detention that welcomes immigrants into the social fabric of the United States. Through these windows into the system, we gather data and stories to combat injustice at the individual level and push systemic change.

75 Dollar Bill
75 Dollar Bill, using a plywood crate and guitar, make electric, richly patterned music that can shape shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism - an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India and the Middle East, Sun Ra’s space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their hometown. New album I Was Real coming June 28 on Thin Wrist/BlackEditions Group (and tak:til/Glitterbeat Records in Europe).
