Join us for home-style Mexican food and conversation about issues facing undocu/DACAmented immigrants in St Louis. After dinner enjoy music and Mexican cumbia lessons with several local dance instructors, and stay for social dancing (cumbia, salsa, bachata, and more)!
These meals present an opportunity for immigrant families to share knowledge and skills unique to them. It is also an opportunity for us to get a glimpse into their culture. These fundraising efforts can set them on a path of greater independence and confidence in their lives here in in the USA.
When you attend a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club, your meal will be prepared by immigrant neighbors who will share their traditional cooking skills by providing a table full of traditional food from their country of origin.
This dinner is cohosted by Cosecha, which is a grassroots non-violent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Cosecha means “harvest” in Spanish, and honors the long tradition of farmworker organizing and the present-day pain of the thousands of undocumented workers whose labor continues to feed the country.
Welcome Neighbor StL and Cosecha invite you to break bread and build community together.
