Davis Vanguard Court Watch will hold its 8th annual fundraiser. The program will be: "Immigration Law: Defending Immigrant Rights and Keeping Families Together."
Immigration is a highly charged and important issue in our nation today. The event features two speakers who have been on the front lines of defending the rights of immigrants and their families. Matt Gonzalez is the Chief Attorney with the San Francisco Public Defenders Office. Holly Cooper, Co-director of the Immigration Law Clinic, has extensive litigation experience defending the rights of immigrants and is a nationally recognized expert on immigration detention issues and on the immigration consequences of criminal convictions.
"The Village Feast commences upon the closing of Saturday’s Davis Farmers Market—America’s Favorite Farmers Market—in celebration of September’s Sacramento-region Farm to Fork Month. Yolo County puts the “farm” in America’s Farm to Fork Capitol, and so we come together to enjoy and honor the bounty of our local farmers. This event goes beyond a delicious meal, there will be a silent auction held as a fundraiser to benefit Davis Farm to School and Les Dames D’escoffier Sacramento. Both organizations provide support of early and continued education around food and agriculture. All proceeds from the Village Feast ticket sales and silent auction will go towards these missions."
