Writers for Migrant Justice

Western New York’s literary community will gather on Wednesday, September 4 at WNY Book Arts Center to present the Buffalo installment of Writers for Migrant Justice, a national series of benefit readings to raise money for Immigrant Families Together. Nearly 50 readings have been organized nationwide to benefit this organization and its efforts in paying bonds, legal fees, and relocation costs to release and protect detained migrants; providing medical needs, food, transportation, clothing, blankets, car seats, diapers, and more for families who have been released; offering temporary housing stipends to refugees who have been released but have no family in the U.S.; and much, much more. This event is sponsored by WNY Book Arts Center, Peach Mag, Coffin Bell Journal, and Ghost City Press.
