Christmas Day is right around the corner and while most of us are excited to spend an evening with our loved ones, there are some from our immigrant community who aren’t currently afforded that same luxury. Grassroots coalition Sanctuary Long Beach is organizing a fundraiser at Liberation Brewing Co. to help DACA applicants and detainees stuck in immigrant detention centers get home and stay home for the holidays. All the money raised will go directly towards helping DACA applicants and bonding out a local community member currently in immigrant detention.

To join in on the liberating libations, with live music, tacos and (of course) beer, a donation of at least $5 will be accepted at the door, but if you can, why not give more? If you don’t have cash, Sanctuary Long Beach has a Venmo account you can donate to at @fundDACAlbc.

Another great thing: Make sure to check out the newest selections Liberation is pouring in their taste room. As of Dec. 2, they’ve got 10 new bottled and draft beers for you to sip or chug, whatever your style.

Giving us a moment’s pause: We’re good; hope you are too.

Liberation, Tacos & Brews is Friday, Dec. 20 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Liberation Brew Co. located at 3630 Atlantic Ave. For more information about the event, you can check out their Facebook page. To find out more about Sanctuary Long Beach, click here.
