Join us for an evening of musical performances and Thai cuisine, as we raise funds to support local immigrants detained by federal immigration enforcement agencies with their bail and legal costs.

Event tickets can be purchased for a suggested donation of $15-50, or on a pay-what-you-can basis. You will also have the option online to buy tickets for guests who have low-income. All proceeds will go toward supporting detainees' legal and bail expenses.

This event is organized by the Tompkins County Immigrant Rights Coalition (TCRIC), the Rapid Response Network, and community partners. The TCIRC supports the development of immigrant-led organizing, advocacy and services in Tompkins County. TCIRC’s Rapid Response Network is a group of community volunteers who try to witness and document the presence of immigration officials in Tompkins Co., to help ensure that immigrant rights are respected and to provide community support in cases of immigrant detentions. We have Working Groups that do community outreach, detention and post-detention follow-up, media advocacy, and coalition-building.

For more information on the TCIRC, visit; or email Donations can be tax-deductible, but please contact us ahead of time if this is the case.
