NWIRP’s Annual Gala Celebrates Courage, Resilience, and Hope

In contrast with hearing news like a top government official claiming that toddlers can represent themselves alone while facing deportation or that another political candidate has made anti-immigrant comments, we need to come together and celebrate stories of courage, resilience, and hope.

Featured Speakers Ronald Alvarado Garcia (L) and Maikol Alvarado (R) with their attorney, Lindsay.

Our gala on Friday, May 20th, will do just that. We’ll hear from clients, staff, and board members who will share their stories and remind us why we come together to defend immigrant rights. We’ll hear from:

  • Teenage brothers who fled gang violence in Honduras and started a new life with their family in Burien, WA
  • A woman from Thailand who didn’t find out she was undocumented until she was 18.
  • A woman from China who – after being locked up in Tacoma’s Northwest Detention Center for two years – is now living safely on her own and thriving as an artist

 

In addition to celebrating our mission, the gala – as always – will include great food and entertainment. Join us for a delicious dinner, music by Orquesta La Grande, and a live auction with special items such as a stunning oil painting by Peruvian artist, Ernesto Gutierrez, a ten-night stay at a historic mansion in San Miguel de Allende, and a unique meal with NWIRP’s Seattle staff.
