ART FOR ALL 2
Sunday, November 17, 2019
14 Tyler St. Somerville, MA 02143
Boston For All is teaming up with Aeronaut Brewery, BIJAN, and a group of local artists to offer a fun fall event! Enjoy some of the best locally-brewed beer while exploring some great original art. Choose the perfect piece for yourself or to give as a gift – and 100% of the money you give will go directly to support immigration justice here in Boston. The Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network (BIJAN) will use the money raised at this event to provide legal advocacy, court accompaniment, and to post bond for release to help support our neighbors who are most vulnerable to unjust immigration policies.
While the event is completely free, we will be accepting donations to support The Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network (BIJAN) – they provide legal representation and advocacy to immigrants here in Boston facing detention and deportation.

Art For All: Recap (June 2019)
Art For All was a part of Boston For All Week (2019) and it was a huge success! Over the course of the week, we raised over $20,000 in support of three fantastic organizations:
The Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network (BIJAN) – providing legal representation and advocacy to immigrants in Boston facing detention and deportation.
Redes en Acción Venezuela – a local organization helping Venezuelan refugees settling in the Boston area.
Komera – an international organization promoting personal empowerment and education for girls in Rwanda.
Our friends at the Jamaica Plain Artists' Association co-hosted the event, and local artists donated a wide array of paintings, works on paper (framed and unframed), collages, sculptures, and ceramics – with 100% of the proceeds going toward BIJAN's incredible work to support our most vulnerable neighbors!
Thank you so much to our generous sponsors of Boston For All Week, without whom we wouldn't be able to do this work!
