Restaurants holding fundraiser for Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota

Several restaurants have teamed up for a fundraiser, “Restaurants Rising,” planned for Wednesday, March 15 to benefit the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota.

The organization provides immigration legal assistance to low-income immigrants and refugees in the state and advocates for policies respecting the universal human rights of immigrants.

In a Facebook post, organizers of the fundraiser wrote: “With so many people in our community threatened by the divisive and discriminatory stance the new Trump administration has taken on immigration, many of us are looking for ways to stand up in support of Minnesota‚Äôs immigrant community.”

Participating retailers and restaurants will pledge a percentage of sales to the Immigrant Law Center on March 15.
