All proceeds from the concert go to support the Immigrant Justice Initiative (IJI), a ministry of The Community Church of Chapel Hill Unitarian Universalist that sponsors and assists asylum seekers whose lives were in danger in the countries from which they fled. IJI, with support from Kehillah Synagogue, other faith communities, and the community, has provided housing and all other financial needs for 22 immigrants over the last 3 years. These immigrants are generally not permitted to work for at least the first year that they are in this country. Thereafter, they will face very large legal expenses to achieve their dreams of a fresh and safe future.
