If it hasn’t become extraordinarily transparent by now, I am an organizer. And on occasion, I like nothing more than to spin tunes for incredible people raising money for much needed causes.
Today , I’m spinning for the New York State Youth Leadership Council’s (NYSYLC) end of year party, which is raising scholarship funds for undocumented youth to be able to afford college. NYSYLC is an undocumented youth-led organization in New York City that empowers immigrant youth to challenge the broken immigration system through leadership development, grassroots organizing, educational advancement, and is also a safe space for self-expression.
If you are in the boroughs for the holidays, come get your post-Christmas, Mayan celebration of the New Year on with us. Immigrant communities are looking towards 2013 for big changes, with a real possibility of immigration reform. Why not start mobilizing with a dance party?
