National Immigration Law Center: Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

New York Immigration Coalition: The New York Immigration Coalition aims to achieve a fairer and more just society that values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all. The NYIC promotes immigrants’ full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York’s diverse immigrant communities.

Arab American Family Support Center (New York City): The Arab-American Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to immigrant communities throughout New York City.

Action NYC: ActionNYC connects New Yorkers to free, safe immigration legal help. You can make an appointment to learn your immigration legal options and get immigration application assistance.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States. The work is truly lifesaving because there are nearly 80 countries around the world where it is a crime to be LGBTQ, with consequences up to and including the death penalty.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND): KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of children who enter the US immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety and well-being.

Thanks for joining us zivilars! Like a lot of FMU shows the music can vary a lot from hour to hour and even minute to minute but I hope you continue to hear things you like...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm zivilars:

Was frightened that this show might be TOO experimental for my taste and didn't really know what to expect, but I'm positively surprised ... However, looking forward to every variation you magically pull out of your hat, always looking to widen my musical horizont! This is great, Greetings from Germany!

If work's lite on Wednesday I'll check out Katja's show. Thanks for the heads up, Rob
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Rob W:

Whoops Armando - that's because I spelled their name incorrectly - it's Amasosha Kaduza - here's the album: www.discogs.com... . There were a lot of regional / language-specific styles in South African in the 80s and they were a Zulu trad vocal group but I don't know much more about them. If you look up the album's producer Lucky Monama on Discogs you'll find other similar music and that may give a little context: www.discogs.com...
