|Club Congress Fundraiser a Great Success!|

Thank you to all who came out to our fundraising event at Club Congress on Saturday, May 15th! It was a great success for our organization and we so appreciate the support from our community (and all the new faces)! Your contributions will undoubtedly help fund our multi-faceted fight against SB1070.
An extra special thank-you to all of our volunteers and the businesses who donated pieces for our silent auction - we could not have done it without you!
If you were unable to attend our event, please enjoy this poem from C. Jill Hofer, a Poi-Zen fire dancer who read this prior to their performance.
Aspiring Together, on Common Ground
Written by C. Jill Hofer for Border Action Network 5/2010
We are Poi-Zen Fire Troupe.
Somos compania del fuego de Poi-Zen
We are proud to bring the fire tonight
Somos orgullosos traer el fuego esta noche
We bring fire of passion, not of violence.
Traemos el fuego de la passion, no de la violencia
We wear the flags of the two countries to show unity.
Usamos las banderas de los dos paises para demonstrar la unidad.
Our flags share the same colors of red and white
Las banderas tienen los mismos colores de rojo y de blanco
Red for blood of war, white for peace
Rojo para sangre de guerra, blanco para la paz.
Unique to each flag are Stars and the color green
Unicas a cada bandera son las estrellas y el color verde
Symbolizing the sky and the earth - which our two countries share.
Simbolizando el cielo y la tierra – que nuestros dos paises comparten.
Let us aspire to reach great heights together, while standing on common ground.
Aspiremos alcanzar grandes Alturas juntas, mientras nosotros paramos en la tierra comun.
