ACTION: Help the South Texas Civil Rights Project

From VivirLatino:

The specific needs of immigrants in crisis situations, like hurricanes, is important now and taking care of those needs requires a community response.

The South Texas Civil Rights Project (located in San Juan, TX) is a non-profit, public interest
organization which provides free legal services to those in the
Valley’s low-income community whose civil rights have been violated.

We are pleased to announce our 3rd annual Noche de Fiesta –
Celebrating Commitment to the Community on Wednesday September 3,
2008, at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce. This event celebrates and
honors individuals striving for human rights in our community.
Proceeds from the evening will enable us to continue providing
advocacy in a variety of areas and free legal assistance to low-income
Valley residents.

Please consider donating to our raffle or silent auction and support
the very important work that we do. All donations will be
acknowledged in the evening’s program booklet. In previous years,
donations came in the forms of gift certificates, art pieces, books,
zines/magazines, furniture. Monetary donations are always welcome.

The South Texas Civil Rights Project cannot afford to do this work
without your support. Thanks to community support, we have helped many
people achieve a quality of life in the community that would not
otherwise have been possible. Your support will allow us to continue
to protect civil rights and will be greatly appreciated by the people
we assist.

assitant, at or Corinna Spencer-Scheurich, Equal
Justice Works Attorney at Both can be reached at

  1. You people need your heads examined. Joe Arpaio is enforcing the laws of the United States, as his job description calls for. Does the word ILLEGAL have any meaning for you??

    You act like a bunch of spoiled toddlers who demand to have your way no matter how inconvenient, irrational or outrageous your so-called needs are.

    If someone enters this country illegally, they are criminals, just like if you entered someone’s house illegally. WHAT NERVE YOU HAVE!
