Karen's bail has been set, and we've almost raised enough funds to get her out of detainment! If you have been planning to donate to the cause, please do it as soon as possible. The sooner we can reach bail, the sooner we can reunite Karen with her daughter and family as she awaits her court date. How valuable would each passing day be if you were separated from your child?

We have a free Tropical Mix CD for anyone who donates $25 or more. Just PM your address to us after you donate, and we'll get it in the mail.
DAY OF ACTION FOR KAREN JARAMILLO: Minneapolis friends, please help today if you can! Karen has been jailed on immigration charges since Nov 2, separated from her daughter and family. She has a bail hearing today at 12:30pm. The judge is more likely to let Karen out of jail if she has community support in the courtroom. Please show up if at all possible: 1 Federal Drive, Fort Snelling, MN 55111.

Our dear friend, collaborator, and sister Karen Jaramillo has gotten snagged by ICE, and needs our help!
She is a charismatic, complex, and creative soul, and a champion of Latin and cultural music and arts events in the Twin Cities. She is also the single mother of a darling little girl, whom she is now facing separation from.
Please help her secure the legal representation she needs to remain where she belongs - with her family and community in Minneapolis. Keep Families Together!
To help the cause, we have created a special mix CD with some of Karen's favorite tropical music. We will personally mail this CD to any of our friends who contribute $25 or more to the cause. Just shoot us a quick PM with your address after you've made your contribution, and we'll get it to you.
Buy this vinyl + cassette bundle from Star Creature Universal Vibrations for $50, and they will donate $50 to earthquake relief efforts in Mexico City. Awesome Deal!
Much love to the family of Sonny Knight
