Somewhere Over the Border

May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

 

Join us on this very special event and support NIJFON’s mission to provide free high quality immigration legal services, engage in education and advocacy and create cross cultural communities.

You can support by buying a ticket, making a donation, spreading the word or doing all 3! All proceeds will go to support free immigration legal services throughout Northern Illinois.

On this night exclusive to Justice for Our Neighbors you will preview Somewhere Over the Border with friends and family of NIJFON:

Inspired by the real life journey of the author’s mother (Reina Quijada) from El Salvador to the US and by L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Somewhere Over the Border embraces the factual and the fantastical in its depiction of one young girl’s pursuit of the American dream. As Reina travels north to the Mexican border, she gathers friends, faces down dangers, and holds tight to the memory of the little boy she left behind. Set in the 1970s and propelled by Cumbia, Mexican Mariachi Boleros, American Rock and Hip Hop, this new musical is both fable and family history—and a testament to the determination born of love.

*In order to ensure the safety of our friends and neighbors, we ask that all guests wear a mask throughout the event.
