Families Belong Together: A Community Fundraiser @ Civic Hub WR
Mar 5 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

A fundrasier in support of the Roblero-Morales Family | Families Belong Together | A evening of Community Care for Migrant Justice

A fundrasier in support of the Roblero-Morales Family | Families Belong Together | A evening of Community Care for Migrant Justice

Join us for a night of community care for migrant justice in support of a local family facing deportation from Waterloo to Guatemala. Because we all deserve safety. Because no one is illegal. Because families belong together.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

We’ll be screening “In the Shadows of Borders”, a short film that explores if Canada really is as welcoming to migrants as one may think. After the film, we will hear from Sandra Morales, mother of six, whose husband, Daniel Roblero, was deported over 3 months ago. Sandra and five of her children have also been threatened with deportation and are currently waiting for a response on their application for permanent residence on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds. They came to Canada fleeing violence and persecution in Guatemala and the US. Daniel, husband and father, was the main provider for the family and so we are raising funds for the family to support them during this very difficult time.

Find out more about the case by reading Press Release: Community members deliver holiday card to Waterloo MP calling for permanent status for Roblero Morales family on Facebook.

There will be snacks, an amazing silent auction, community resources and a room filled with lovely people who care.

FUNDS FOR THE FAMILY

Tickets are sliding scale $5 to $15. Pay what you can snacks. Silent auction with many amazing pieces and baskets, stay tuned for some of the items you can get! Please bring cash. We will also accept e-transfers for silent auction items.

ALL money raised will go directly to the Roblero-Morales family. If you would like to donate a silent auction item or money and cannot attend the event, please email karly@lspirg.org
