Don’t miss this Unified Voice concert on Sun. Jan. 13 @3:00pm. It promises to be full of well-loved folk music, by composers you’ve all heard of, performed by outstanding musicians… and it’s for a great cause–social justice, especially around immigration.

Join us Thursday afternoons from 4-4:45pm at the ICE Field Office (925 Keynote Drive, Brooklyn Hts) as we stand vigil against the inhumane treatment of immigrants.
