Happy Spring from Riot Alliance!
After some crucial post-holiday sales hibernation, Riot Alliance is preparing for spring and summer sales with cherry blossom fire! Spring and summer sale dates are taking shape, so be sure to find the Riot Alliance booth on 2nd Street from 5-8pm during First Fridays in April and May, and at the first two sales of the season:
Riot Alliance's Social Justice Partner Organization January - April: Juntos
During my graduate studies, I had the privilege of working as an MSW intern with Juntos, a Latin@ immigrant community-led organization based in South Philadelphia, fighting for human rights of workers, parents, youth, and immigrants. Juntos combines leadership development, community organizing, and focused collaborations with other community-based advocacy organizations to build the power of the Philadelphia Latin@ community as agents of change.
Juntos has been influential in recent campaigns to revoke the license of the Berks Family Detention Center accused of numerous human rights abuses against Latin@ women and children, and in advocating for restoring Philadelphia's commitment to being a "sanctuary city" for immigrant communities. 10% of all Riot Alliance sales benefit Juntos' crucial human rights work through April!
